Subject RE: Question on timeout
Date Tue, 14 Dec 2004 22:16:00 GMT
Thanks for help!

The computer where this connection problem occurs is our application server,
so I haven't got a chance to replace network card. However, it runs all
other non-Axis applications ok that require Internet connection.

The exact SocketTimeoutException problem also happened in the computers that
I said "almost always receives response" -- but very rarely and I couldn't
recreate it if I aim to. So somehow I think that application server computer
just had worse network configuration that couldn't survive a query most
time. I am wondering if there're some software aspect approach I can look

I once heard about TCP_NODELAY setup in registry, but apparently there're no
such setting in any computers here.

I would bet that the Network Interface Card (NIC) is not working
properly, if it is an issue only for one computer.  Or that the
patch cord for the computer is bad, for example if someone
tripped over it, and so on.
