pppd user time limit kicker

I am running linux red hat 4.0 with mgetty answering the phone and then passing the call to pppd.  I need to be able to set time limits for users and have them logged off by the system when the time is reached.  How do I do this?  What do I need?

There is a program available from sunsite.unc.edu that will do just that.

It's called Dial-Up utilities and it is GNU.  I am using it on two sites but I had to re-compile it and modify it a bit because it is designed to use kernel 2 and above and I was running 1.2.13.

You can download he one at sunsite or I can e-mail you a tar of my modified version.

I have another one that is not GNU but youn would have to pay for it and it does all that you want plus automatic billing and all you accounting for you, all you do is keep your server up and collect the cheques.  If you want the last I am the author and so e-mail me direct.
