Hello again Tobias,

Thank you for your kindly help, I'm using radiusDB now for accounting. 
It is ok.

Last problem is; I still could not found a way to terminate an active 
connection by it's username.

I looked swanctl help and see this : swanctl --terminate        (-t)  
terminate a connection

I dont know is it terminating an active user connection or not, i tried 
: "swanctl -t testuser", it said: "terminate failed: missing terminate 

How can I do that?
