File-Transfer Timeout

You can define the time the workstation waits for a response from the host system (in seconds). If the host system does not respond, the transfer is canceled, and an error message appears. A number in the range 20–65535 (or 0) can be specified. The default is 60 seconds for ASCII sessions. Specify an appropriate value such that the error message does not appear too early. If you specify 0, a timeout is not set.

If a packet or block size is relatively large for low-speed lines, such as COM port lines, it is recommended that 150 seconds or greater be specified.
