My understanding from reading the Radius book made it sound like
session-timeout will allow the user to re-connect.

Am I wrong here?

The hotspot is a cafe. We provide them a list of passwords (actually
usernames) which their customers use to authenticate with our radius
server. Right now, they recycle that list. Any way I can impose the
limit so the user can not use the same code to log in again, at least
in that day? If I have to create more codes, that's fine... I don't
care about that, just about getting these sessions terminated so they
don't have customers lounging...
