# number of authentication servers. Strict EAP conformance mode can be
# configured by disabling workarounds with eap_workaround=0.
+# Station inactivity limit
+# If a station does not send anything in ap_max_inactivity seconds, an
+# empty data frame is sent to it in order to verify whether it is
+# still in range. If this frame is not ACKed, the station will be
+# disassociated and then deauthenticated. This feature is used to
+# clear station table of old entries when the STAs move out of the
+# range.
+# The station can associate again with the AP if it is still in range;
+# this inactivity poll is just used as a nicer way of verifying
+# inactivity; i.e., client will not report broken connection because
+# disassociation frame is not sent immediately without first polling
+# the STA with a data frame.
