If during a connection attempt the request remains idle for longer than the timeout interval, the request is considered to have timed out. The default timeout interval is 60 seconds.
As a general rule, you should not use short timeout intervals. Instead, you should provide an easy way for the user to cancel a long-running operation. For more information, read Designing for Real-World Networks in Networking Overview.
