global $sock;
$sock = socket_create(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, SOL_TCP);
socket_set_nonblock($sock);
socket_connect($sock, "$ip", $port);
socket_set_block($sock);
switch(socket_select($r = array($sock), $w = array($sock), $f = array($sock), 5))
{
       case 2:
               echo "[-] Connection Refused\n";

You could also use fsockopen or pfsockopen for persistent connection, you can specify the timeout.

http://en.php.net/manual/en/function.pfsockopen.php
http://en.php.net/manual/en/function.fsockopen.php

You can specify the timeout. Look at the examples on the above links.

$fp = fsockopen("www.example.com", 80, $errno, $errstr, 15);


Hope this helps

How about this though?

http://au3.php.net/manual/en/function.stream-set-timeout.php

Example 1. stream_set_timeout() example
<?php
$fp = fsockopen("www.example.com", 80);
if (!$fp) {
   echo "Unable to open\n";
} else {

   fwrite($fp, "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n");
   stream_set_timeout($fp, 2);
   $res = fread($fp, 2000);

   $info = stream_get_meta_data($fp);
   fclose($fp);

   if ($info['timed_out']) {
       echo 'Connection timed out!';
   } else {
       echo $res;
   }

}
?>
