akit, This is really dependent upon the type of equipment your using. Normally these options can be set within your
Radius or your Remote Access Server (RAS).

Hi,
I'm using 56K modem over the PSTN system. Currently, the connection is established by mgetty and pppd.

akit, Thats pretty vague. Is this that your wanting to extend your connection time to your ISP and avoid time outs? or is this that you want people to connect to your services and be able to limit and controll there connected time?

From your initial question it seems as if your wanting to know how to setup dial in access to services that you want to provide to end users.

Can you elibrate on what your actually trying to do, it
would help in trying to provide you with a correct answer.

This is my case and currently the "dial-in server" is running (mgetty & pppd) but I can't control the time access limit of the dial-in users.

Please advise. Thanks.
