Set bigger timeout for a specific ASP page

Hi all,

I have an ASP upload page that fails in timeout for end-users of my intranet app.
They are on a remote site with a low bandwidth wan connection.

I'd like to set a bigger timeout for the upload page, but not for the other pages.

I'm aware of the
Server.ScriptTimeout property, but I don't want to set this timeout for the whole intranet app.

Session.Timeout could help, but how can I get more specific ??

Any ideas welcome

while uploading a file script is executed and you need to keep the Server.ScriptTimeOut longer

Session.TimeOut and Server.ScriptTimeout two different things

It doesnt matter if you increase  the Session.Timeout it gives scripttimeout error
if the executing script exceeds the scripttimeout time

You can chage the Server.ScriptTimeout after uploading the file

This is an idea I ma not sure if this will work but you can the name of the page and assuming that your timeout is an include file you can try this...

<%
if request.servervariables("SCRIPT_NAME") = "nameofthepage.asp"
Session.Timeout = 45 '45 minutes before session timeout
end if
%>

This way you can just make an if statement to still preserved the other timeout of other pages...

As nubek mentioned (filyat :D ) ,

Server.ScriptTimeout = 60 (numeric value in seconds)

This will change timeout seconds for that page only!
