Configure timeouts

If the supplicant or the authentication server is unresponsive, the authenticator terminates the authentication process after 30 seconds by default. Configure the amount of time the authenticator waits for a response before termination.

  • Terminate the authentication process due to an unresponsive supplicant in INTERFACE mode (1 to 65535, default 30).
