I am getting timeout expired when running a sql stored procedure using WCF

I am getting a message after starting a stored procedure which never came back. The message indicates "Timeout expired or server is not responding". Where can I increase the timeout (the stored procedure is expected to take more than 2 hours.

The web.config file Service model section is as follows:

      <system.serviceModel>
            <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true"/>      
            <bindings>
                  <basicHttpBinding>
                        <binding name = "secureMsg"  maxReceivedMessageSize="4194304">
                        <!-- 4 MB -->
                        </binding>
                  </basicHttpBinding>
            </bindings>
      
            <services>
       <endpoint
                          address="IdeaUtilitiesFacade"
                          binding="basicHttpBinding"
                          bindingConfiguration="secureMsg"
                          contract="Reinsurance.Application.IdeaUtilities.Interface.IIdeaUtilitiesFacade"/>
     </service>
            <behaviors>
                  <serviceBehaviors>
                        <behavior name="Debug_Behaviour">
                              <serviceDebug
                                    httpHelpPageEnabled="false"
                                    includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true"
                              />
                              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="false" />
                              <serviceAuthorization principalPermissionMode="UseWindowsGroups" />      
                        </behavior>
                  </serviceBehaviors>
            </behaviors>
      </system.serviceModel>

Dear King2002
I read that InactivityTimeout also has to be adjusted...
Where can I do that?, and is it really necessary? , If I want the timeout to be 5 hours should I set the receiveTimeout="05:00:00"?. and finally, can I apply all these to the basicHttpBinding, I do not want to create a new binding. Thanks for you help

You should set the sendTimeout on the client binding. This will set the timeout time for the call to the webservice (including waiting for the reply)

InactivityTimeout is for when you use ReliableSession, which is not applicable in your case of a basicHttpBinding.
