Changing Connection Timeout value for IIS 7

Posted by Jean Paul on November 27, 2012

For web applications including SharePoint, occasionally we might need to change the Timeout value.

We can achieve this through INETMGR tool.

Step 1: Open INETMGR


Step 2: Choose Advanced Settings

Select your web application from the left pane and click on the Advanced Settings from the Actions pane.


Step 3: Set Connection Timeout

In the appearing dialog box expand the Connection Limits group.


Set the value in the Connection Time-out (seconds) property.  Please note that the value measures in seconds.

Step 4: Restart the Web Application

You can restart the web application or do an IISRESET for the changes to take place.
