No, these values are currently hardcoded, you may change them at [1].

I don't understand why two factor authentication should be an issue.
According to your log, the RADIUS server does not respond to the
authentication request, and the retransmission times out. Why does
processing the RADIUS request take longer than 14s, given that there is
no user intervention at this stage?
