Internet Explorer Timeout

I am using the Internet Web Browser control in a VB6 project.

Here's my problem...

I display the browser and load a html file from my c: drive.  This html file has a form that is submitted to an ASP Server for processing. Processing in some instances may take up to two minutes before the ASP sends its response depending on connection speed, data base size on server and a number of factors.

On occasion, the Web Browser will time-out and display the "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error.

How can I increase the Web Browser Timeout or better yet, temporarily force the browser to Not Timeout until the response from the ASP Server is received?

Anyone have a solution?
