Sorry, this is a repeat from several days ago. Still no answer, so I figured I would try posting it again in hopes someone might know. Tx.
I have an app that uses a canned socket library. The library just uses connect when it attempts a connection to a socket. If the host is not there, the timeout is up to 2 minutes. The app I am working on will only run on a local isolated network, so it does not have any need for a long timeout.
I cannot recode the library and require it due to shared resource constraints, so would like to turn down this default to a much smaller value.
I have looked through the documentation and searched help, but I can find nothing there on the matter. I did find something from 2001 on syncookies, but am not sure that applies anymore.
If anyone knows how to turn down the "default" time-out on OpenSuse or other linux boxes, your help would be greatly appreciated.
As a guess, look at /sys (or /sysfs, which is the official name of the filesystem typically mounted at /sys).
I would also look for documentation in the kernel source tree. You should find a directory full of documentation. If that doesn't help try asking on email@example.com. You should not have to subscribe, just e-mail away. They have great spam filters on the various linux kernel lists so they let anyone who wants post.
