The HTTP options determine various parameters iSiloX uses
when communicating with HTTP web servers.
Web browsers and other programs that connect to a web server
usually send information to the web server to identify the
user agent used to access the server. Some web
servers may not answer requests for content from user agents
which do not identify themselves.
By default, iSiloX sends User-Agent information. The edit
box under Send User-Agent header line shows what iSiloX
sends for this. You can uncheck Send User-Agent header
line if you do not want iSiloX to send the user agent
information. Click Default to reset the value to iSiloX's
default identification value.
Depending on network conditions, communication may take
longer. To prevent premature timeout of iSiloX's connection
to HTTP web servers, you can set the number of times iSiloX
will retry a given attempt to download content and the
timeout values used to determine whether a connection failed.
You specify the maximum number of times iSiloX tries to download
a given page by setting the Maximum number of retrieval
attempts per page field.
Maximum wait times
You can set the maximum number of seconds iSiloX waits
for each of the following:
- Connect: iSiloX attempts to make a connection
and waits this long for it to be established before timing out.
- Send: iSiloX waits up to this long before timing
out when attempting to send retrieval request information.
- Receive: If iSiloX waits this long and receives no
more content, then it times out.
