Hard timeout sometimes not working



  • I'm not quite sure, but I think it started with 2.01.
    360min hard timeout. sometimes this gets ignored and user keeps logged in (forever?)
    according to ticket system and other post there was no bug found.

    possible reasons:

    • after rebooting this works again quiet a time, so maybe only happens after a while (50 days last time)
    • when changing some configurations, last time it has been pfblocker upgrade with no reboot, this time maybe changing wan setup without reboot caused this.

    seems that something is stopping the counter for timeout management, however this is implemented…

    will keep looking to find something reproduceable



  • i have the same issue, also for idle time out, i loged in and stoped my activity, when i check again next day i saw my username still logged in.

    i dont know if some one else have this issue.



  • I thought it was me , I've been messing with this for a few days now , time permitting,, and see the same thing with usage timeouts. Testing I would setup a laptop for 2 GB limit daily, then download off a server through the wan farther up the network. When the limit was reached during a DL it would disconnect . If I hit retry or browse to a site a while later I was allowed.

    I thought it had something to do with the passthrough credits. Setting this too 0 I could not pass any data at all. Even with a new account on another laptop.



  • hadi, alan,

    do you experience this always or only sometimes, maybe when your box was running for a long time?
    What packages installed?
    On my testbox only pfblocker and pfflowd installed, squid-reverse removed.
    nothing special…
    Can't be hibernation mode that irretates pfsense...



  • i am using 6 pfsense boxes in different sites, i had the 386 relase 2 working fine untill i changed it to 64, then problem started in one of the servers which have more than 80 users, it shows now that server is on for 25 days, but on the 386 release, i never reboot any server except for updates

    I"m using mac auth and noticed this with a fresh reboot setting the DL limit too 1 gb per month then after it lost connection from downloading a 1.2 GB file , all I had to do was refresh a page and I was back on the net.
    No other packages except freeraduis2.
    I figured i was setting something wrong.
