Cris is right: it may be handy. But it also brings trouble in several situations. If you want to get rid of these records, you go to: Ethernet/Mod Config/Accounting (this is a menu tree in MAX config window. Every MAX owner knows it very well... ;-) And set "Allow Stop Only" to "No" It prevents Stop records that don't have correspondent Start to be sent to Radius server. Cheers.
