Is there a way to set a socket connection timeout in node.js http.request?
I'm not looking to set a http request timeout but a connection timeout.Answer1:
req.socket.setTimeout(30000); This overrides the default of having no timeouts for sockets. Be aware that the
timeout event will not automatically close the connection, you'll have to do that yourself when you handle the event, usually by calling
destroy on the socket. You can also add a one-time-callback as an optional parameter.
