Crystal Reports SQL Timeout Issue

Crystal Reports

I'm not sure whether to ask this as an independent question or a pointer.  It's related to the question at https://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Microsoft_SQL_Server/Q_22088714.html?qid=22088714 , but it's not really the same question.  An ASP.NET appliction I'm trying to repair (it was not built by me nor do I have any decent documentation/source code for it) is returning a Timeout error right now.

The page is ReportViewer.aspx (which looks like it might be a standard CrystalDecisions/CrystalReports page) and it displays any report requested.  Certain reports are returning timeout (regardless of the data you try to populate them with).  I used Crystal Reports to pull the SQL query the report is running and ran it against my database in SQL Query Analyzer.  Not only does it work perfectly, it only takes approximately 12 seconds to complete (default timeout is 30 seconds).

I don't entirely understand how CrystalReports gets its data or returns it so I'm not really sure where to go from here.  If there's anything I can post to help you help me, please ask!
