NAME

       CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT_MS - timeout for the connect phase

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long.  It  should  contain  the  maximum  time in milliseconds 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_MS(3) option.

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

DEFAULT

       300000

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

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

         /* complete connection within 10000 milliseconds */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT_MS, 10000L);

         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Always

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK
