The operation has timed out - Connection type Web

Hi what is the time limit for the Connection type Web.

There are not any options to define this in the desktop client.

 

Is there an api/config file that contains these values locally on the comupter where the desktop client is installed?

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Thanks for feedback, actually I believe I found the workaround/solution to it myself.

 

First step connect to a similar source and let it load.

Edit in advanced mode:
Add this part after the source part : [Timeout=#duration(0,0,5,0)] where (days,hours,min,sec) are the values.

 

The tip was found on technet:

There is an idea out there for it:
