Radlogin has not state mechanism between a start and stop
record that it sends. It will *ALWAYS* send a sesion time
of 180 seconds, which Emerald rounds to 4 mins. In the
real world, the NAS DOES have state and will send the
correct session time.

You can use Radlogin to do this, but the times will always be
four mins.
