    Timeout for HTTPSendRequest

    I am calling HttpSendRequest() to get response header from a url. But HttpSendRequest takes more than 2 seconds to return. Why is this so? Is there anyway I can set a timeout for this? I tried SetInternetOption() using INTERNET_OPTION_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT after calling HttpOpenRequest() but that did not work. Thanks in advance..

    Try calling InternetSetOption before calling HttpSendRequest.

    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    You should set:
    INTERNET_OPTION_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT
    INTERNET_OPTION_SEND_TIMEOUT
    INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_TIMEOUT

    If you set all three to 2 seconds, then the entire operation could take up to 6 seconds.
