TCP connect timeout
From the documentation I could find, net.ipv4.tcp_syn_retries should control this. The documentation says the default value is 5 which should result in about 180 seconds. I checked the value of net.ipv4.tcp_syn_retries on my older and newer (Fedora 14) machines, and it is 5 for all of them, yet the timeout is much shorter on Fedora 14. What other parameters should I check to find out why the timeout has gotten much shorter?
