Timeout expired error in a service running

  1. Hello, I have a .NET service running and sometimes, not very often I receive
    this error "Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion
    of the operation or the server is not responding. General network error.
    Check your network documentation" I don't know what is causing it.
    My web server is in one server and my SQL is in a different server. The SQL
    server has not so many transactions. This service is reading a table every
    12 seconds to see if there is something with status pending to print, and
    when reading the table it gives me this error. First I didn't have a
    CommandTimeout property defined but I read that sometimes the default
    doesn't work OK and I set the CommandTimeout to 600 which is more than
    enough, but I still get this error. What else can I do? Please some advice
