How to exten IIS timeout for ASP page response to let sey 120 minutes

What registry keys or even better HTML headers are necessary to extend the IIS server side defined ASP page response timeout?
I need this to create a server-push page which will wait very long time (hours) for new events and I want to reduce traffic by keeping the requests open until new event occur.

Sorry, I just found a good compilation of the statements I need in my ASP page to control timeouts:

I need the ASP page not to timeout so I assume the Server.ScriptTimeout is the keyword of choice.

Thanks anyway.

Do you mean "script timeout"? If so, it's a setting in IIS - right click on your web application in IIS, select 'Properties'. Click on Configuration and select Options tab - set the script timeout to whatever value you want
YOu can try these


or check this out

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="600" />

Thanks but the last one was for ASP.NET pages.
I forgot to mention that by ASP I am using only classic ASP features.
