in reply to WWW::Mechanize Timeout period

Am I missing something obvious?

Which error is reported after those 4 minutes? Is it the same error if you use an unused IP address? And for an existing IP address but without a web server listening there?

FWIW, I performed the tests on mech version 1.52.

    Thanks All.

    In response to Alexm.

    For a switched off device:

    Error Code:Error GETing HTTPS:// Can't connect to (connect: Connection timed out) at line 24

    For a machine that doesn't have a web server:

    Error Code:Error GETing HTTPS:// Can't connect to (connect: Connection refused) at line 24


    I've just noticed that the timeout works when using port 80 instead of port 443. This might be enough for me to get around my problem (if I can get a response from port 80 then I can go for port 443).

    Thanks again


      I confirm that the timeout doesn't work as expected when using https. The port is not significant, since I tried port 443 with http and timeout worked fine.
