Server Hacking - What is timeout ?
The term timeout has several meanings, including:
- A network parameter connected to an enforced event designed to occur at the conclusion of a prearranged elapsed time.
- A specified period of time that will be allowed to elapse in a system before a specified event is to take place, unless another specified event occurs first.
- While the connection is being recognized, the primary thread waits until a connection is established, for an error to occur, or for a network timeout.
