The Question is:
On March 5, 2003, somebody had asked the question "how do I increase the ftp
timeout", and the you replied, "The OpenVMS Wizard would typically use ping
Can you give me an example of how to do this, since I am not sure how to
increase the timeout using ping.
The Answer is :
The question was one of design philosophy -- the user requested a
faster timeout for FTP when the host was not available, and the
answer -- back in Ask The Wizard topic (8488), as topics move and
date-based references are comparatively difficult to locate --
suggested that the ping tool be used for a connectivity check.
Not as a way to adjust the FTP timeout.
