Acked-by: Gert Doering <g...@greenie.muc.de> This is a useful addition for situations with external constraints ("this VPN access may only be used between 10:00 and 18:00", so you can ensure the session ends at 17:59:59 without having extra managmeent logic around). Whether it's overly useful in "global server context" or on the client side stands to be debated - but this needs no extra code, so "it's just there and someone might find use for it".
I have tested client-side (works), server-side/global (will terminate each instance <n> seconds after connecting, but not itself) and server-side/ccd (per-instance kill switch with per-instance timer). Unfortunately, the man page addition about explicit-exit-notify is wrong - on the server side, it never sends notifies, it just kills the client TLS instance... 2022-10-07 18:05:13 us=256095 cron2-freebsd-tc-amd64/188.8.131.52:29079 Session timeout, exiting 2022-10-07 18:05:13 us=256170 cron2-freebsd-tc-amd64/184.108.40.206:29079 SIGTERM[soft,session-timeout] received, client-instance exiting .. without telling the client, so that one needs to run into --ping timeout 2022-10-07 18:05:42 [server] Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting .. 30 seconds later, which is not really satisfying... Can we do better? I have, for the time being, removed the offending man page section about --explicit-exit-notify and merged the rest (no code change).
