in reply to HTTP Request Hangs

Try to enable debug logging in LWP to see what happens (see LWP::Debug). What version of Perl are you using? If you use 5.005 then it comes with IO::Socket module which has a bug in timeout handling (IIRC LWP uses this module). You should upgrade to fixed version in this case.

    Running Perl 5.6.0 on Sun. I'll add the LWP::Debug and see what that shows. Any suggestions on how to wrap the request in code that will kill it if it does not complete in a given time (like kicking a job off in BG and killing it it it takes too long)? Thanks for the LWP::Debug tip.
