I had setup wireless using WLC with web authentication via radius server.

I am able to manage session timeout via radius attributes but the idle timeout is not working. Can anyone provide me some clue on this?

Also, is it possible to inform the user if the idle timeout is reaching soon?

The User Idle Timeout, When a user is idle without any communication with the LAP for the amount of time set as User Idle Timeout, the client is deauthenticated by the WLC. The client has to reauthenticate and reassociate to the WLC. It is used in situations where a client can drop out from its associated LAP without notifying the LAP. This can occur if the battery goes dead on the client or the client associates move away.

In order to access ARP and User Idle Timeout on the WLC GUI , go to the Controller menu. Choose General from the left-hand side to find the ARP and User Idle Timeout fields.
