Im trying to increase the timeout for a webpage I have. I think its already set at 100 but im wanting to increase to 120:

 sqlConnectionString="data source=xxx.xxx.xxx.xx;initial catalog=DB;persist security info=False;UID=H;Password=P;packet size=4096"
       cookieless="false" timeout="100" />

Do I just amend to the timeout=100 to timeout=120?

Yes. The value of Timeout is provided in minutes. Changing the value to 120 will work as you expect.

are you looking to set the connection timeout or the actual page timeout? if you want to set the actual page timeout property, you'll want to do:

Server.ScriptTimeout = 120

or you can do it directly in IIS:
