UTM Sophos time-out extension

By 23 May, 2016May 10th, 2018No Comments

Once in a while, you might encounter a timeout issue with some websites due to their slow connections or sluggishness. By default, the UTM Web Protection timeout is set to 60 UTM Timeoutseconds. If you’d like to test if the site works by extending the timeout you may do so by logging into your appliance through SSH and executing the following command where we will add another 60 seconds to our initial timeout of one minute:

Login with loginuser and then su:

loginuser@utm:/home/login > su
# cc set http response_timeout 120

Logout and close SSH.
