BinaryTimeout

BinaryTimeout specifies the number of seconds to wait for a remote web server to respond when transferring binary content. This timeout does not control the total amount of time for the transfer, but rather the maximum amount of time that EZproxy will wait without receiving any data from the remote web server before abandoning the request. Examples of binary content include images and Adobe Acrobat PDF files. The default value is 60 seconds.

BinaryTimeout is a position-independent dconfig.txt directive.
