Are you sure you're using the correct Radius attribute? If you're trying
to set a maximum session time of 9 hours through an Ascend Max, you'd set:
Ascend-Maximum-Time = 32400 (seconds)
If you're using Ascend and decide to use the above attribute, the person
will be disconnected within a couple minutes of that time and the
Ascend-Disconnect-Cause will be 100 (session timed out) as if they were
