Changing the TCP/IP connection-time-out interval

You can increase the number of seconds that HCL Domino® waits before terminating a connection attempt. For example, increasing the time-out interval is often necessary on a server that dials up other Domino® servers. The default time-out interval is 5 seconds.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, click the server for which you want to change the time-out interval.
  2. Click the Configuration tab.
  3. From the Domino® Administrator's Tools pane, choose Server > Setup Ports.
  4. Select the TCP/IP port.
  5. Click TCPIP Options and enter a number.
    Note: Unless the connection is over a dial-on-demand ISDN modem, remote bridge, or router, it is best to enter a number no greater than 10, as the HCL Notes® client or Domino® server will not retry the connection until the timer has expired.
  6. Click OK.
