NAME

       CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT - timeout for the connect phase

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, long timeout);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long. It should contain the maximum time in seconds that you allow the connection
       phase to the server to take.  This only limits the connection phase, it has no impact once
       it  has  connected. Set to zero to switch to the default built-in connection timeout - 300
       seconds. See also the CURLOPT_TIMEOUT(3) option.

       In unix-like systems, this might cause signals to be used  unless  CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL(3)  is
       set.

DEFAULT

       300

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

         /* complete connection within 10 seconds */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10L);

         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Always

       Returns CURLE_OK
