In the throws of depolying a new network in a phased 1 approach of MAC auth and Informational Agent-Less assesement.

Currently clients are passing MAC auth and assessment but are throwing the following error:

Filter-Id='Enterasys:version=1:policy=Enterprise Access', Session-Timeout='604858', Termination-Action='1'

This is only for those that are doing assessment, so my assumption is that the effect of this is causing the problem.

I've seen this GTAC article that details how I can add a session timeout value:


But wanted to see if anyone has had a similar problem and what cause of action they did to correct it.

Many thanks,

how is this an error? These are just the different RADIUS return attributes, and nothing seems like it is wrong.

Hi Martin,

i run into similiar problem to set session-timeout=xxxxx. (session-timeout = trigger a re-Auth).

Try a smaller session-timeout value.
Try the lastest EXOS Version of the EXOS trail (16.2 / 21.1.4 / 22.3)

(In daily project nearly every EXOS version has some smaller bugs/issues and i am waiting for some current fixes)
