I see, sorry I missed that part.
If I need to do this I usually use a linux firewall and change the iptables
rules through cron.
There are firewall distro's with ready to use examples for this, but of
course they are off-topic
on this list and I don't know if you actually want to use them at all.
If you want more info on this you can e-mail me off list, no problem.

Sounds familiar ;-)
Just thinking, can't you add/delete a check item to radcheck through some
expiration Attribute or something? Let the script set/delete a (passed by)
expiration date in radcheck.
When the attribute is there he won't be able to login cause his account will
be expired, when the attribute
is not there, he can login :-)

Something like this:

mysql> select * from radcheck where `UserName` = 'hombrouckxeli';
| id  | UserName      | Attribute     | op | Value         |
| 359 | hombrouckxeli | User-Password | := | ****masked****       |
| 360 | hombrouckxeli | Expiration    | := | 01 april 2007 |
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)


Kind regards
