I see. Though, thinking about it, even if I do, I think it wouldn't work
for what I want.
If I understand RADIUS correctly (?), the server only responds to requests
by the clients (eg:my wifi router) and doesn't act by itself (eg: by
sending a revoke access message or such).
So if I implement custom rules to expire user accounts then that won't come
into play until the client tries to authenticate it again, so if someone is
connected the person would stay connected indefinitely(untill log-off or a
break in the connection).
