When browsing the web, I am always getting a "10060 Connection Timeout Error" and I can't open or do anything. Then I will need to Reload the page to open it again but then, eventually it will happen again. How can I permanently fix this issue? What are the causes of it?
Connection Timeout Error 11060 on Website
A connection timed out error is showing that there is no response from the specified IP address. It could be because of misconfigured router or your firewall. If you have any firewall software running in your computer, please disable it or configure it so it can be able to allow connection. This error also occur if the Web Proxy service connection settings does not permit sufficient time to get a response from its destination site before it closes connection. The Web Proxy service can wait up to 60 seconds on the first attempt to connect to a website and then, it will receive requests for an answer from the server. To fix this, try the following:
1. Check the Web Proxy Connection. Identify the problem if it appears only when the Web Proxy service is used. You need to install Winsock Proxy Client and then disable the web proxy settings. To do this, go to Internet Options and then Connections tab and then under the LAN settings. When done with it, try to open again the website that produces error. If you can open it now then it is most likely the problem is with the Web Proxy timeout settings. Proceed with the next step.
2. Adjust the Web Proxy Timeout Settings before it quits the idle sessions. To do this, follow the steps below but remember to backup your system since the steps will require you to modify the registry.
A. Click Start and then Run. Type regedit and click OK.
B. Go to the following subkey:
C. Right-click the RequestTimeoutSecs from the right pane of the window and click Modify.
D. Click the Decimal option and then type how many seconds you wish the Web Proxy service to wait for a response before it throws an error. The recommended value is 180 and up and click OK.
E. Restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service by:
1. Click Start> Run> Type CMD and click OK.
2. Enter net stop iisadmin /y and press the enter key.
3. If the service stopped successfully, enter "net start iisadmin /y and press the enter key.
F. Try the new settings on your computer that is configured to use Web Proxy service. Go to the website again where you are encountering an error, if the problem is still there, proceed to the next step.
G. Do Step B to Step D again but this time, change the value to 300 and up on the VAlue Data box.
H. Restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service again and try the new settings again on your computer that is configured to use Web Proxy service. Go to the website again where you are encountering an error, if the problem is still there, proceed to the nest step.
