For many reasons you might need to increase the IIS connection timeout.
The many reasons can be many time consuming processes, large transactions, slower connections, etc.
As a result if your application is timing out, one thing you can do is to increase the connection timeout.
  • To change the timeout value you need to open Internet Information Services (IIS) manager. Either type InetMgr in the Run window or click on Start -> All Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  • In the IIS Manager expand the main node and right click on the Web Sites and click on Properties.
  • In the Web Sites Properties page give the appropriate value in the Connection timeout field under Connections section in Web Site tab and press Ok.
  • Now to make the setting take effect restart the IIS by either typing IISReset in the Run window or right clicking on the machine name and going to All Tasks and clicking on Restart IIS… in the IIS Manager.
