How to set TCP Timeout
my RedHat Linux is of kernel version 2.4.21-4.ELsmp.
i need to find out the TCP connection timeout. Meaning, if a certain connection is unavailable, the timeout value in seconds of which the kernel will give the destination un-reachable to the application.
Been searching high and low for this parameter but couldn't find it.
Also, i need to shorten this timing.
Any advise will be highly appreciated. Thanks!
