Can I set a time limit for connection to a certain WLAN?

I would like to set a time limit for how long a client can be continously connected to the WLAN that provides my guest internet access. The user name/password is hosted on my ACS and authentication is provided by my Cisco NAC. I am using 5508 controllers (7.02) and WCS.

Somewhere in this combination of stuff, there has to be a way to set a two hour time limit.

guess the acs should have account expiration limit configurable per user.

you can create guest account using lobby ambassador with time attached to the user.

If you are looking for your guest to get kicked off which requires them to log back in .. One option would be to set the WLAN session timeout to 2 hours.

Like this?

The WLAN Session timeout is a hard limit for all users on the WLAN.

To my knowledge, the WLC should also honor AV-Pair 27 (session-timeout) if you set it through radius....  This would enforce a session reauthentication based on a value dynamically set through radius, opposed to a fixed value on the wlan...

With that said, the fixed "session timeout" on the wlan is the quick an easy method.... 

Marcreidwch,

Correct ...

Wes,

I am pretty sure the session time out would only work if you have a splash screen. Since this time out dosent kick the users off but makes sends a reauth
