hold-time and inactivity-timeout
« on: October 30, 2014, 03:42:47 PM »
wireless-client hold-time
wireless-client inactivity-timeout

Just thought I'd share.  In prior versions these parameters were only accesible from the command line, but in v5.5 (and possibly 5.4, not sure) they are in the GUI under:

Configuration ->Wireless
 Pick your wirelss profile
Then "Firewall" -> "Firewall Session Hold Time"
and "Client Settings" -> "Wireless Client Idle Time"

These settings in particular fix devices like ipads getting knocked off guest networks with captive portals, forcing them to re-authenticate every time, or in some cases, having to reboot, at least in my experience.

This option does not appear on the 5.4 GUI, only command line.

I struggled with iPADs / tables being forced to re-authenticate after the wifi was shutdown to save power by the device until I found this setting via advice from this forum.

very useful setting  ;D
