It should throw a RemotingTimeoutException in that case.  You have to use a Try..Catch block to catch and handle that.

try {
    string s =  myRemotingObject.getSomeData();
    // At this point you know the data came back correctly, so use 's' with that assumption.

} catch (RemotingTimeoutException e) {
    // There was a timeout; do what you like to resolve it.
}

There are two places you may have to change:

1. Change the ASP.NET timeout
http://www.devx.com/vb2themax/Tip/18803

This is the most likely culprit of your errors

2. Use the Timeout property of your proxy class to set the proper time on
the client.

WebReference.ProxyClass myProxy = new WebReference.ProxyClass();
// Set the timeout in milliseconds -- e.g. 100 seconds
myProxy.Timeout = 100000;

Hope that helps.
