 Hi everyone!

Thank your for your answers...
Alan, Patric has totally right. I've set the reject_delay to "0" and the
result was the same.
I really don't want to touch to the source code and I am sure we can find
another way

1) if there is a server timeout, is it assumed as an Access-reject (or does
the user will be given access ?)
2) for instance, executing a script from another language which exit 2 from
PHP...I tried it with a sh script and it does not work
3) If I reply with a Session-Timeout := 0...may be it will be the same
effect (I know it is not clean but I have no other choice
4) If the previous solutions do not work, I will probably have to change the Patric, I think the name of the file has changed: it is rlm_exec.c
instead of exec.c. Also, After compiling it, could you give some hints to
uninstall the previous version and to install the new version properly.

Thank you for your comprehension.
