To increase timeout for connect function

Hi All,

Is there any way to increase the timeout of connect() function.

Kindly provide me some information on configuring the TCP/IP timeout period, used during the AIX 'connect()' function call.

There is an environment variable "TMOUT", which is an integer value. Set it to 0 to disable automatic lockout or to a positive number to automatically close a session after the denominated number of seconds of inactivity.

How this relates to system calls like connect() should be in the AIX programmers reference manual.

I hope this helps.
