newbie questions using freeradius as wifi access point

Ok, now I am completely into new territory. Never did a cvs checkout before.
Learn something new every day.

Just to be clear before I keep going down this track...

My underlying problem is that I am setting an Expiration value in radcheck,
but Session-Timeout is not getting being returned in the authorization
request that is in line with the Expiration value I inserted.

Based on this post:

I believe that a fix was made to this problem that is not in the 1.0.4
release and somehow I have to get my hands on a version of freeradius has
the fix (rlm_expiration module is in there).

Am I correct?

  Hmm... that's not good.  Anyways, the latest snapshots change a
*lot* more than you need.  I suggest doing a "cvs checkout" yourself:

$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at login
$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at co -r release_1_0

  Should get you 1.0.4 with a few fixes.
