Web Service Connection Timeout RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a WCF Web Service running on a server.  The App Pool Idle Time-out is set to 20 minutes.  However, the web service throws a timeout exception at 5 minutes.

    I know that it is not best practice for a web service to run this long, but it some cases it cannot be avoided.  

    It seems that the Network is closing the connection at 5 minutes thinking that it has been idle for this amount of time.  

    I know there is a setting for this - but I can't seem to find it.  

    Any ideas?
