or editing mf-client.dat:
[defaults] connect-timeout=15 timeout=30
These timeouts are set in seconds, but with a 5-second grain, so in effect they are rounded up to the next multiple of 5 seconds. Timeouts are set as follows:
If the application calls MccSetTimeout / MccSetConnectTimeout on a context, that context will use the specified timeout values.
Otherwise, if MFC_TIMEOUT / MFC_CONNECT_TIMEOUT is set in the environment, its value will be used.
Otherwise, if a "[defaults]" section exists in mf-client.dat and it contains an entry for "timeout" / "connect-timeout", that value will be used.
Otherwise, the built-in defaults of 15s for connect timeout and 30s for other functions will be used.
