Based on a little further testing you seem to be entirely right on this. Thanks for the response.

I have been adjusting the value and I can see that the value is being sent in the reply. It seems like Windows is staying connected without reauthenticating early but Android and iOS do.

its the NAS that rules the show.... if its been configured with some other value and not been told (if configurable) to take the value from the RADIUS reply, then you'll get whatever the NAS has been configured to use...
