I threw togethr a quick script. Here's the code...

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Experts-Exchange Test</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<%

server.scripttimeout = 300
response.write "This page can run for "
response.write server.scripttimeout
response.write " seconds before it time out.<p>"
%>

</BODY>
</HTML>


Here's the output...
This page can run for 300 seconds before it time out

How does it differ from yours?

Probably, you're trying to set;

Server.ScriptTimeOut(300)

The correct syntax is;

Server.ScriptTimeOut = 300

Or go to Start | Programs | WinNT 4 Option Pack | Internet Info Server | Internet Service Manager
Select your web site, right-click, Properties,
Tab Home Directory, Button Application Configuration, Tab App Options, ASP Script Timeout.

I bet your program is not OK, since you need such a large timeout. Any questions to that?
