Ticket #596 (closed Bug report: fixed)
Time-based Abuse Control Window not working properly

Hi, I wanted to post this here because I couldn't find any other ticket that was having a similar problem.
I've installed wifidog (both the gateway and the auth server on the same system) on a Debian Lenny box. Everything works wonderfully. Since I have this set up for our guest network, however, I would like to set some limits with the Abuse Control Window. For test purposes, I set a window of 20 minutes and a connection duration limit of 10 minutes. After staying connected for longer than 10 minutes, I am not kicked off of the network (as I am with a bandwidth limit - which also works fine). Instead, I am not given an error until after go back to the Wifidog login page, log out, then log back in. Of course, I would like a user to be directed back to the login page or whatever as soon as possible after the 10 minute limit.
Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Some extra info if needed: My CheckInterval? is at its default 60, with the Timeout at the default 5. My DHCP lease time is 600 seconds (But I didn't change the max, still at 7200). I did find a patch for fw_iptables.c somewhere that seemed pretty recent. I made the necessary changes (in two spots referenced in the ticket - I'm sorry I don't remember the number), but that also did not seem to work.
