Gets or sets a time-out when reading from or writing to a stream.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Specifically, the property controls the time-out for the Read method, which is used to read the stream returned by the GetResponseStream method, and for the Write method, which is used to write to the stream returned by the GetRequestStream method. If the time-out period is exceeded, the calling method throws a WebException with WebExceptionStatus set to Timeout.
To specify the amount of time to wait for the request to complete, use the Timeout property.
