User time out before authentication timeout?

Hy everybody.

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.

Thanks!
F.

    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
    end

    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?

    Hi.
    Quite an old thread - no, I did not search for that setting anymore.
    It could be "config system global - set remoteauthtimeout" or maybe more correct in here: "config user setting - set auth-timeout".
     
    The above are from FOS 7.0.0 but should be very similar on FOS 6.4.5
