Configure RRAS policy

I need to set an idle disconnect for VPN users. Everything I have read says to do this I need to create or edit my Remote Access Policy. My challenge is when I open RRAS snap-in and expand the server I do not see Remote Sccess Policy listed or anyway to add it. FYI This server also acts as my ISA/radius server.

Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry, just checked now. When you enable RADIUS authentication for RRAS, RADIUS supersedes RRAS policies, so they are removed from RRAS, which is why they are not present for you. You can create a similar policy in RADIUS, using the same instructions provided earlier, by opening the Internet Authentication Service console (administrative tools) on your RADIUS server.

Open the RRAS console | expand the server | click on remote access policies | right click in the right hand window and choose new Remote access policy | use wizard and enter a name | VPN | select the group or users to which you wish to apply | select defaults in the next windows (unless you have configured differently) and  finish | right click on the policy and choose properties | edit profile | set you idle time out, session limits, and/or access times and OK
Polices are executed in order, but I don't believe the placement of this one should make much difference. If you want to change its placement right click on the policy and choose move up or down.

This should do it. I don't believe you have to restart the RRAS service to apply, but if it doesn't work you can restart from the services management console.
As an alternative, you could also edit an existing policy, or I believe do the same thing within RADIUS.

My challenge is that 'Remote Access Ploicies' is not listed, I cannot select it as it is not there. I know that sounds strange but its not an option. I dont know if that has anything to do with the fact that I am using ISA and radius.
