What does the setting Connection Timeout (in seconds) do?

Glenn Bardwell (58621527) | asked May 22 '15, 2:01 p.m.
In the Eclipse Client, I right click on a repository connection and click Properties. On the property page, there is a setting: "Connection Timeout  (in seconds)." What does this setting do?

This setting specifies the amount of time the client will wait for the server for an particular request/response.

After that time, the client will give up on the server. The server will keep working, but when it tries to write back to the client, the write will fail. Once the timeout is exceeded, the client will act as if the request were cancelled.
