Problem with freeradius

I recently wanted to use '' Download quantity and download traffic ''
limit the amount of traffic of each user in 1200 Mb per day
But when i fill the box '' Quantity of download and download of traffic '' by the number volus: 1200
this user account no longer works, while all other accounts are working properly
Things are fine when I delete the number of traffic in the box.
in pictures all the manipulations I made;
I added a cronjobe << 0 0 * * * root / bin / rm / var / log / radacct / datacounter / day / used-bytes - * >>
Thank very much

Your last image : as per https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Using_Captive_Portal_with_FreeRADIUS - Section : Amount of Traffic the option "re-authenticate users every minute" should be set so the user gets disconnected.
Otherwise your limit of "1200" (Mbytes) will not work …
What I did to check / debug all this :
I read this : https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Testing_FreeRADIUS
This : https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Additional_Logging_for_FreeRADIUS (written for 2.x but useful).
Also : when your setup is ok, goto Status => Services
STOP the radius daemon.
Acces the console. Take option 8 - SSH access.
Read … Find the option -X Use it ! Start radfius by hand using **radiusd -X** (or **radiusd -X -xx**) Now you have all the info - there should be no red lines. Keep this console window open. Now login with a user on the captive portal. The entire login info will be laid out, and it's easy to find what went wrong. Questions about what being shown , Normal. Radius is not some small program, it's huge, took me days of just reading this one https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeRADIUS and many others. With manuals, Radius (FreeRadius) is useless. > I added a cronjobe << 0 0 * * * root / bin / rm / var / log / radacct / datacounter / day / used-bytes - * >> This won't work :) For example, "day" doesn't exist. See image for my cron entries, I used the the cron package of course. ![cron.PNG_thumb](/public/_imported_attachments_/1/cron.PNG_thumb) ![cron.PNG](/public/_imported_attachments_/1/cron.PNG)
