  Blame the NAS.  The NAS (or AP in this case) is supposed to send a stop record when it decides that the user is no longer online.

  If the NAS doesn't do this, it's broken.

  FreeRADIUS just records what the NAS sends.  If the record isn't correct, then blame the NAS.  No amount of poking FreeRADIUS will make the NAS send the correct records.

  On another note, you sent two complete debug outputs, most of which was for EAP.  Not accounting.

  If you want us to help debug accounting issues, show the debug output from accounting packets.

  You also sent multiple copies of the configuration files.  We don't need that.  We've already seen those configuration files.  They ship with the server.  It's a total waste of time to send them to the list.

  Please read this page:

  It describes what information we need.
