As per the replies to your comment, it appears to be working again now.
However, I'm wondering if the timeout period within NetSurf can be
extended/customised by the user at all.
As people know, I've been developing some printer driver software for the
big Xerox printers, and as part of that, I've got some code which will
launch a window to NetSurf, so that you can upload "walk up" jobs to the
printer web front-end.
When you start sending a (very) large file to the printer, it can take 5-6
minutes transferring data, but recently NetSurf has been timing out,
thinking the remote site is not responding. Unfortunately, the printer
doesn't send a response until the whole file has been uploading (often
200MB or so), which is confusing things and often an error such as
"Broken pipe" is given.
I've got a temporary way around this by browsing to the printer's web
front-end whilst the print job is transferring and randomly clicking on
links or refreshing, which seems to fool NetSurf into thinking the remote
site is still responding, so the other window doing the file upload doesn't
It would be good if there was an option to extend/disable or otherwise
customise the period after which NetSurf decides to timeout.
