Dear Aran C. Bell

Thanks for everything, Here is update.


All-In-MB counter works. Please note, when a user has downloaded his
quota, counter
do not force log off . Saying other way, if the user is online, he would
remain online until he log off him self or stop browsing. But point to be
noted that counter prevents from login him again. user cannot login again
if he has already hit quota threshold. Please look the example of reject. This
user is allowed for 7GB, please mind that *check_item which shows
7168*is specified in

*[gigawordcounter]       expand: %{sql:SELECT SUM(AcctInputOctets) /
(1024*1024) + SUM(AcctOutputOctets) / (1024*1024) FROM radacct WHERE
UserName='quotauser'} -> 7389.1705*

*rlm_sqlcounter: (Check item - counter) is less than zero*

*rlm_sqlcounter: Rejected user quotauser, check_item=7168, counter=7389*

*++[gigawordcounter] returns reject*
Which basically means that initially authorization is done by SQL then
"max_all_mb", checks are only done once when the user makes the logon
attempt and checks are never done again. This is where i have failed. Since
you are more in to this, is there a way to perform this check
on frequent basis and send reply to NAS to logoff user? then it should


sqlcounter gigawordcounter {
            counter-name = Max-All-MB
            check-name = Max-All-MB
            reply-name = Max-All-MB
            reply-message = "You have reached your bandwidth limit"
            sqlmod-inst = sql
            key = User-Name
            reset = never
            query = "SELECT SUM(AcctInputOctets) / (1024*1024) +
SUM(AcctOutputOctets) / (1024*1024) FROM radacct WHERE UserName='%{%k}'"

*2.) Solution offered by You. *

I tried your recommendations also, i tried to maintain following in local
FR dictionary *"/etc/freeradius/dictionary"* and Chilli dictionary

ATTRIBUTE       Acct-Input-Octets64     3005    integer64

ATTRIBUTE       Acct-Output-Octets64    3006    integer64

Results: failed to start FR

reason for failing: : un recognized value specified in *

reason for failing: : un recognized value specified in *

Thanks / Regards
