 Subject:  Captive Portal - Reauthenticate via RADIUS occasionally?
 Date:  Mon, 27 Sep 2004 21:40:13 -0600
How hard would it be for the captive portal to cache the user's username 
and password, and recheck with the RADIUS server if the user is still 
allowed on every 'x' minutes?

The goal is to deny certain users access during certain hours.  The 
problem is that right now those users just need to login before the 
cutoff and they can stay connected until the hard timeout.  On the other 
hand, I don't like the hard timeout because it tends to annoy legitimate 
users who aren't passed the cut off.

Would this be doable?  Anybody else think it would be worth a feature 
request?
