You can restrict certain portions of the config file to be operative
only at certain times of the day, you can have a cron job completely
shut diald down and start it up at specific times. It depends what
you mean by "work" - do you mean only bring the link up if receiving
network activity during certain times of the day, (and keep the link
down unless specifically requested at other times) or do you mean
completely give up managing the link (both in terms of bringing it up
and taking it down on inactivity) during certain times of the day?
Either situation could be done with a config file change, though in
the second situation it's better to use a cron job.
