So if you have a 60 min lease then it would be renewed every 30 mins.<br>
I&#39;m not sure of the exact state machine of most devices but I do know
from logs that most laptop&#39;s try to renew an existing (or previous) ip
address. I don&#39;t know what embedded devices (such as iphones etc) do.<b=

As for re-authing a session if that would be implemented I know I would
prefer it to be a configurable option (or at worse a compile time
option). Having EVERY DHCP request turn into a radius request could
cause a significant volume of traffic.<br clear=3D"all"></div></blockquote>=
