Hi, have a Website with an iFrame PHP Programm. This program is getting data from IBM-Navision Server. The call to the Navision Server ( i did not program this) tends to not come back if something is not correct in the call parameter (eg. data not in DB).
Here is the code:
      $ibm = new SoapClient($ibm);
      // call Navision
      $result = $ibm->request($params);
      // if the call hangs - we will never get control back
      return $result;
Is there a easy way to get control back after a few seconds?

There are two approaches here.

1. Set the timeout in the SoapClient. This will control the CONNECTION timeout. This is -probably- not the issue if the hanging is due to bad parameters. You can see some examples of how to set different options for that "new SoapClient" line in the documentation here:

http://php.net/manual/en/soapclient.soapclient.php

The examples don't include an example of the timeout, but the documentation that lists the different options discusses how to implement the "connection_timeout" option.

2. If the connection is hanging due to bad parameters, it's more likely that you'll need to set the default socket timeout:
http://php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php#ini.default-socket-timeout

Is there a reason you gave me a "B" grade instead of an "A" grade? You never said anything in my response was wrong and it would be beneficial to others to know if my suggestion was incorrect or what the correct final answer was.

Dear gr8gonzo, thanks anyway for your answer. I had no chance to test it because the people from the server where not willing to change anything in there setup. Now we have to live with this unconfortable situation. I could never verify your solution.
