HTTP Service Connection Timeout Availability

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Timers exist to protect the HTTP Service and server applications, while allowing connections to be reused before a timer expires. If you are experiencing connection timeout errors, the recommended solution is to adjust client sending behavior to operate within the timeouts. With caution, timeout periods can be increased by using Netsh commands.
