[Lynx-dev] Connect-timeout

We’re using  lynx in a job that’s scheduled every night. In the job lynx makes a call to a certain web-url.

The problem we have is that linx give the following message:

HTTP request sent; waiting for response.

Alert!: Socket read failed for 180,000 tries.

Connection interrupted.


The call to the url starts some processing which takes more than 5 hours.

In the config file I saw a property connect_timeout=18000.

When I understand well, when 18000 seconds pass without linx receiving any response form the request it lanched it will generate the above error.

So what we did is double the connect_timeout to 36000 seconds. But this doesn’t work.


Are my assumptions concering the connect_timeout property wrong ?

Is there a way to change this behavior ?


Kind regards,


Dries De Moor
