    What factors determine when a browser times out a server request? Any
    rough standards.

    This seems a bit unpredictable. Does sending unbuffered output over a
    period of time help?

    The browser times out when the TCP/IP stack times out. You have little
    control over this except to dive into the registry and tweak the settings,
    fraught with danger.

    Unbuffered output? Send? Send where? In a timeout situation there is nobody
    to send to, the target IP address is not responding.

    It's possible the o/p could be refering to script or session timeout values,
    but it's not clear.
