HKP Timeout

Hi all!

I recently got a complaint from a user not able to download certain large PGP
keys. It turned out that he has a slow Internet connection (56k modem) and
always got a 408 error ("Timed out after 60 seconds") from SKS for at least the
following keys:

   0x94C09C7F
   0x74E0B766
   0x248AEB73
   0x307D56ED

This keys are quite large, eg. 0x94C09C7F has about 450KB thus exceeding the
default HKP timeout of 60s on slow connections. Increasing the timeout value to
180s solved the problem (this way it should even work with 28.8 links).

I'd suggest that all operators set "wserver_timeout: 180" in sksconf to remove
this limitation.

Any thoughts?


Peter
