Timeouts for URL retrieval



We're using Libwww Version 5.1b to add a simple capability for
retrieving URLs to our application. Unfortunately, if for one reason or
another, the remote host can't be contacted, the software blocks for
75 seconds. Although I've traced this delay right down to the 'connect'
system call, I can't see any simple way of reducing this timeout
interval.

Any help appreciated,

Ian.
