I'd really like to implement this feature too. I've been very concerned
about false concurrency denials. I'm using USR Total Control equipment.

If you have an enterprise license and have SNMP configured and
working, RadiusNT can make SNMP requests to verify whether the
data in the calls online for that user is correct or not. It will
NOT update the calls online. Its just verify whether the user is
still on-line as listed by the calls online. The goal is to
prevent any false denial, rather than prevent 100% concurrency.
I'll see about updating the current 2.5 docs to include information
on this SNMP feature as well.
