Communication Tab

Under the Tools menu, there are several system options that you can set for your client. The options are listed by tab order. The Communication tab allows you to set the following options.

Item Description
Normal Transaction Time-out Determines how long, in seconds, the client waits for a response from the server for normal transactions, such as displaying project data. If you are running the program over a modem or slow connection, you may need to increase this time.
Lengthy Operation Time-out Determines how long, in seconds, the client waits for a response from the server for lengthy operations, such as running reports. The time needed to build reports depends upon the report selected and the amount of data being compiled.
Network Diagnostics Level Determines the level of detail presented when you run the network diagnostics utility. You can use this utility to troubleshoot communication problems. This option should only be changed at the direction of Micro Focus support.
