OK. So I have a Chillispot Access Point (http://www.chillispot.info/)
which use Freeradius.
Freeradius use MySQL to store users accounts.
There is a radius database with a lot of tables :
I can insert into the
 'Idle-Timeout' argument.
I can read the 'Acct-Session-Time' argument which give me the session
time for each user who is logged out.

No Idle-Timeout is only an argument for Freeradius in my MySQL radius database.

How to update automatically the 'Acct-Session-Time' argument when
there is an 'Idle-Timeout'?

Thank you a lot.
