I' m using Forti OS 5.0.1 and guest users (captive portal for WLAN).
Now, I set the authentication timeout to be 1440 minutes (24 hours). Still, I can see users which get timed out long before 24 hours are over...
What could the cause be? The longest duration I' ve experienced, is 8 hours.
Any help will be appreciated.
OK, I got some more informations...
As fas as I discovered, the " guest user" has the timeout being set in the user group.
As you can see, I set the auth-timeout to be 24 hours (1440 minutes):
config user setting
set auth-timeout 1440
This still did not work: users got timed out after 8 hours (480 minutes).
Further, I found out this:
FG100D # config user group
FG100D (group) # edit user_artherstrasse
FG100D (user_artherstrasse) # get
name : captive_user
group-type : guest
authtimeout : 0
http-digest-realm : (null)
user-id : specify
password : specify
user-name : enable
sponsor : disabled
company : disabled
email : disable
mobile-phone : disable
expire-type : immediately
expire : 31536000
multiple-guest-add : disable
As you see, there is " authtimeout" which is set to ZERO.
FG100D (user_artherstrasse) # set authtimeout
<integer> The auth time-out range is 0-1440 minutes (0 = use global authtimeout value)
So far, so good. Nevertheless: where is the global timeout defined?
