Hi, Neil,
     while an on-line host is still up but its http server is down, the
POST process
just hangs there doing "Contacting hostname" forever. This problem is on
NT.
     Do you know how to make the timeout functions work and force it get
out
while the connecting fail.

     Thanks in advanced.




Regards,
Linda
