  No.  99% of the time disconnect messages are useless, and the wrong
thing to do.

  If you use sqlcounter, the module will control session time, and the
NAS will automatically disconnect the user.

  The ONLY purpose for the disconnect message packets is to fix a
mistake.  i.e.  You accidentally gave someone unlimited service,
they've been on for 2 weeks, and you want to disconnect them.

  For normal operations, the Session-Timeout attribute is all you

  I have *no* idea why you would want both sqlcounter & disconnect
