Once upon a midnight dreary, "sub" pondered, weak and weary:

Hi sub,

I have something like this working against Oracle, where we check using a
stored procedure, which in turn grabs the username, the WISP location ID,
and calculates the session time based on the price per minute.

For example:

authorize_reply_query = "SELECT id,UserName,Attribute,Value,op FROM RADREPLY
WHERE Username = '%{SQL-User-Name}' UNION SELECT
'%{SQL-User-Name}'),'==' from dual"

Sess_time is a stored procedure which gets passed the username and the WISP
ID, and returns the max session time.

Hope it helps,
