Just another general rule for good C code - mark your constants if they 
are large.  For example:

#define CONNECT_TMEOUT_MS (50000ul)

That does not work in your case, but it looks nicer than repeated casting.

The compiler wants to 'think' 16 bits, because that is what it is good 
at.  It can do 32 bits, but it has to be forced to do so.  Whenever you 
are doing mixed 16 and 32 bit computations start casting upward like crazy.
