I have a WCF service that implements a NetTcp endpoint. I have a client that connects to this service which resides on a remote computer. This all works fine. My question is; if the remote computer is not there and I attempt to connect
to the remote service the "open()" on the connection will throw an exception after approximately 20 sec regardless of the "OpenTimeout" value I have set. In my case I would like to shorten the timeout period to 5 sec, however, when I change
the "OpenTimeout" to 5 and attempt the open() it still throws the exception ~20 sec later. I've also changed the send and recieve timeout values to see if this would affect the open timeout and it made no difference. Is there a way to shorten the
open timeout period to 5 seconds?
