I used this code to timeout if the url provided is wrong. but it doesn't time out.

client = new TElWebDAVClient();

                httpClient.PreferKeepAlive = true;
                httpClient.UseSSLSessionResumption = true;

                httpClient.RequestParameters.Username = _userName;
                httpClient.RequestParameters.Password = _password;
                httpClient.OnCertificateValidate += new TSBCertificateValidateEvent(httpClient_OnCertificateValidate);
                httpClient.SocketTimeout = 60000;

                client.Owner = "https://eldos.com";
                client.HTTPSWebDAVClient = httpClient;
                client.IncludeBackLinks = false;

this is the part where it hangs.

client.BaseURL = _url;
                _RootFolder = _url;

                TElWebDavObjectList objs = new TElWebDavObjectList();

SocketTimeout does what it is expected to do - it closes connection if there's no inbound activity on the socket for the specified time. You should be observing some different issue.

Did you try the same on the sample we provide with SecureBlackbox? If no, it would be great if you tried and let us know if the problem is reproducible with it. This will give us the ground for further investigation.

Sincerely yours

Unfortunately we're unable to reproduce the issue with our WebDavClient sample. If I click the very left button in its main window, then enter "https://eldos.com" as "Base URL" value and click "OK", I get an exception saying "Invalid response XML structure".

Could you please create a very simple application that reproduces the issue? In this case we would have all the components configured the same way as you do, and as such, could run the app and see what's going wrong.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Alexander Ionov

my example URL is http://sample.dav.com/remote.php/webdav, when I use this and set a SocketTimeOut it works.

but if i modify the url to http://sample.dav.com2/remote.php/webdav it hangs indefinitely.

This makes a big difference. Host name resolution is not controlled by the socket timeout, but the socket layer should return the error in case of the invalid host name. If it attempts to resolve the address, this can be an issue in the socket layer (of the OS, not of SecureBlackbox). We will try to check the problem.

Seems we have simular issue. Is it resolved/confirmed?

Our client use SFTP server through TElSimpleSFTPClientEx.
It works ok for some time, but then it hangs and SocketTimeout doesn't work.
