I need to understand the timieout below and what is actually happening.

In a class I have  
 Dim request As HttpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(strUrl), HttpWebRequest)
blah...blah....blah...
request.Timeout = Convert.ToInt32(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("DEV_CERTIFICATE_TIMEOUT"))

The appsetting number is 7200.

So...how long is that timeout?\
And does that apply to the request itself...and how would that be impacted by any IIS timeouts?

It is milliseconds, so 7200 ms = 7.2 seconds.

Is the following your problem?


A Domain Name System (DNS) query may take up to 15 seconds to return or time out. If your request contains a host name that requires resolution and you set Timeout to a value less than 15 seconds, it may take 15 seconds or more before a WebException is thrown to indicate a timeout on your request.
