Time outs .....making sense of all options
I am running across some session time outs in infopath and on occassion timeouts with sharepoint in general. So doing some research I have only confused myself more. So I ask to help provide some light on how to mesh all the different configuration settings together. SharePoint Farm environment info: All servers are server 2008 x64 OS, IIS 7, MOSS 2007 x64 enteprise sp2 with august cu, sql server 2008 x64. all have latest patches and updates. so trying to mesh together timeouts in general with features, webparts, form services, reporting services, excel services and all other items that can/do timeout so first was the allow large files by kb article (default iis connection time out is 120 seconds): 925083 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925083 then some infopath timeouts that show invalid canary in the uls logs, one solution was change the iis asp session time out found here (default of 20 minutes): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725820(WS.10).aspx then in central administration under the web application general settings there is security validation time out is set to 30 minutes then in central administration you can configure the session state to timeout after 30 minutes then again in central administration and configuration of infopath for services there is a form session time out of default of 1440 minutes some fixes state make changes to the global web config in the layouts folder in the 12 hive and some say make changes in the individual web application web configs in their virtual directories. so my confusion is what is the time out if the above are all set to the default settings? and secondly how do you allow say 60 minutes of session or timeout? thanks

Timeouts are most commonly encountered when you are working with large files. This blog post details how to configure for working with large files, but the settings for timeouts are applicable.

thanks for the reply, i'll look over the link and confirm all the settings i have already made are within recommendations. however what about the session state, form session state, security validation and asp.net session time out all play together?
