Passing "dead" callbacks via DCOM, and timeouts
Posted on 1999-01-21
I'm using VB6 and NT4 SP3 and DCOM.
I have a single threaded server assigning jobs to a multi-threaded worker. The server passes callbacks to the worker. If this owner of this callback object (a client on another machine, passed via DCOM to the server) has been terminated then the server waits 100 seconds whilst trying to pass the callback to the worker, and then times out.
Is it possible to check if the callback is valid, instead of having to wait for 100 seconds for the timeout? Or is it possible to change this timeout value to something smaller?
Thanks in advance,
