Good to know, that's easy enough to handle. >> 1. How do I find the actual system TCP timeout? > > Dont know, somewhere in registry I suppose. I _think_ we have a FAQ but > I cannot search at moment. I recall that we had a discussion in this list a while ago, but there seems to be nothing in FAQ yet. I just wonder how other programs can provide a user defined TCP timeout that appears to overrule the system setting or is something like that just a fake? >> 3.

My opinion was (and still is) that if I don't get a response after 30-50 sec it's useless to wait any longer since either the line is too bad or a server is too busy to finish a transaction successfully either. But I'll make it like you said and will satisfy them by a little spinedit to play with ;) Arno Garrels > --- > Rgds, Wilfried > http://www.mestdagh.biz > > Friday, April 22, 2005, 20:03, Arno Garrels wrote: > >> Hello, > >> Actually I have a custom timeout in all of my applications which >> is hardcoded to values between 30-50 seconds.
