I created a handler to transfer huge sized files over the internet. the handler was working fine but IIS 7 caused it to time out when the file size was very very huge.
to solve it I performed the following steps:
- In IIS manager, open the website properties; choose “ASP”
- In the limits properties section, choose the request time out time and increase it to your required time.
- Click on “Apply” and then restart the website
