Satellite ISP - Broken Pipe Errors

I have a user who is using a satellite isp to use our online application to submit data. We are getting frequent broken pipe errors, in the server logs, that look like:

(32)Broken pipe: FastCGI: comm with
server "/www.yyy.com/site/abc/cgi-bin/ddddd.fcg" aborted: write failed

This is happening when they "submit" data to the server.

We are using an  Apache Web Server running on RedHat Linux.

Any ideas on how we might correct this issue?

Hello trnewell,  I'm wondering if your scripts

Hope this helps...Booda2us

We have hundreds of users and as close as I can tell it's only happening to one, or a few, and I can guarantee I can make it happen for one user. Where might I find documentation or samples of using set_time_out?

Thanks for your help
Could it be a physical problem like misaligned or obstructed antenna?

Hadn't even thought of it being a problem with their setup (I assumed issues with the whole service). I'm going to run this one down tomorrow and will post results when available.
