I'm using a simple Captive Portal with user authentication using a radius server running in one of my hiveAP.
It works, I can create/delete usernames and passwords, but I can't set its time limit (I want my guest users only have one hour of internet access) as I can do in another kinds of autehntication like PPSK with aerohive too.


Can you help me about how can I setup this time limit in this situation?

Regards,

Hello Andres,

I don't think that would be possible with an HiveAP as Radius server. You can setup a Radius
time limitation with ID Manager.

Manoah is correct, the Aerohive HiveOS RADIUS server has no ability to change user profiles based on time of day or connection time. Some third party RADIUS servers may, I believe that Microsoft NPS may, for example.
