Re: Heartbeats Straw Poll

The server cares because it has to do things like stop accounting (a
very important remote access function) and return IP addresses back
to the DHCP server or to it's local pool. It is critical that the IP
addresses are returned ASAP after the client has disconnected so they
can be reused for the next client.
Neither of these (accounting and returning IP addresses to a DHCP pool)
are IPSEC issues. This is stuff you have to deal with even if you're
not using IPSEC. Hence, solving it with an IPSEC-specific solution
seems like we're barking up the wrong tree.
