Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

Returns TimeSpan.

The time, in seconds, allowed for an idle connection.

This timeout is only enforced after the first request on the connection is routed to the HttpListener.

The system cannot determine the request queue or URL group that the request is associated with until the headers have been parsed. Therefore, the HttpListener enforces the default IdleConnection timer for the first request on a connection. Subsequent requests on a Keep-Alive connection will use the value set on this property.
