Recovery time for Port - testing and discovery

I'm trying to figure out if there is a product or a method of testing I can do to determine how long 'before' a port times out.  The scenario is a client application that uses and ODBC connection on port 1603 over a Internet connection, we'll say, to a listening database engine housed on a server over the WAN.  I want to figure out how long before the application would disconnect in the event the internet 'bleeps' for a second, millisecond, etc... I want to know up until when the connection can recover.  I you have the name of a testing tool/simulator or can describe a testing method(commands/utilities, priority, etc..) - that is what I'm looking for.

Thanks,

Dalila

It depends on the application, which should be documented and in some applications configurable.  It also depends on what you mean by "timeout."  Do you mean the user sitting there doing nothing?  Or do you mean the user made a request and is waiting for a response?

I don't think you could find a tool, because the tool would have to know what the backend application is and actually logon to it and do things.  

What you could do is get a packet capture utility (Wireshark at http://www.wireshark.org) install on a client PC and then trace various situations.
