system/schemes/default/timeout only applies to reading from open TCP or UDP ports, directly or indirectly. "Indirectly" refers to situations where a TCP or UDP port is used in the implementation of another port, such as FTP or HTTP. Any other types of timeouts (writing, connecting, closing a TCP port, DNS etc.) are determined by the operating system (and, in some cases, by the protocol being used), and are not affected by system/schemes/default/timeout. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
