I'm setting up an ISP here in Portugal,I would like to create several demo accounts with 10 hours limit of internet access (PPP). Which program should I use to limit the user access to a determined number of hours? (Not per day... but total).
I'm using Slackware Linux 2.0.31, PPPD version 2.3.1, USR modems on a Cyclades serial ports ctrl.

Thank you,

Sergio

You can use the generic Shadow Password suite to limit usage to 1 day or so.  The format is as thus:

login:password:Days since Jan 1, 1970 that password was last changed:Days before password may be changed:Days before password is to expire that user is warned:Days after password expires that account is disabled:Days since Jan 1, 1970 that account is disabled:reserved field.

So, simply change the second to last field to the day before the following day, and the account will expire at that time.

No... I was willing a 10 hour account... Not a single day.
Users should be able to use 10 hours in various days... No day limit.

You can install a internet time server, this is found on the linux cd's, the sunsite part, somewhere with daemons, networks and modems, there is a help file with it, adjust it, boot it, and then it's possible to install a minimum time of users exacly you want it to, i am now at my work, so i can't check on what dir. it maybe found, when i find this week, i shall place a second answer,
