Good Evening Anthony-

how about set maxwait attribute to a reasonably small value such as 5 secs 
e.g. maxwait="5"

I'm a Turkey.  "dbserver" should be "localhost".  Having looked at all
sorts of things, including "telnet localhost", I just did not see it.

There is in fact no machine called dbserver.  It would, of course, be
nice to get a dnslookup error rather than just hang.  But that is not
the way that the C-Grade code in operating systems works!

If Socket could print some sort of message for timeout vs simply no port
listener that would be good, but I suspect that it cannot.

Thanks for your reply, and sorry to bother you.

Anthony
