Socks Timeouts

Is there a way to modify the timeout just for Socks connections as opposed to modifying the global timeouts?  I know you can use the event "Proxy Control" but it doesn't list Socks

Proxy Control Timeouts:                                        Global Timeouts:

Thank you,

Re: Socks Timeouts

Hi Claire,

I'm pretty sure the proxy control applies to SOCKS, someone just forgot to update the settings text to include it.

Best Regards,

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the response.  That is good news.  I have that event in place now and will let you know if it actually works for Socks.
