As the Dude is a free tool, why not release it under an open source license. The tool has a lot of potential but is extremely limited as far as development transparency goes.

Why not just add a "Session-Timeout" variable to your radius profile for that group? That way, the users' client will automatically disconnect and reconnect after the specified timeout period, for example, after 86400 seconds (24 Hours).
