.ConnectInTab Time out

I have a script that logs into routers from a list. I need to have a time out for connection failures. How do I change the time out or test for it?

Here is the connection portion of the script.
Set cfg = crt.OpenSessionConfiguration("Default")
	cfg.Save "CSR"
	Set cfg = crt.OpenSessionConfiguration("CSR")
	fwd = ""
	cfg.SetOption "Port Forward Table V2", Split(fwd, vbCrlf)
	cfg.SetOption "Hostname", ip
	cfg.SetOption "Username", login(0)
	cfg.SetOption "Firewall Name", "Forward"
	cfg.SetOption "color scheme", "Traditional"
	On Error Resume Next
	crt.Session.ConnectInTab "/S CSR /Password " & login(1),False,True
	set objTabCSR = crt.GetActiveTab
	objTabCSR.screen.Synchronous = True
	objTabCSR.screen.IgnoreEscape = True
	a = objTabCSR.Screen.WaitForStrings ("%","#",3)
	nerror = Err.Number
	On Error Goto 0
	If nerror <> 0 Then
		CNNcsr = "FAIL"
		Exit Function
	End If
This works but there is a long (about two minute wait for the tab to time out) wait before the script continues to the next step. I have had no luck finding any information on connection timeouts with SecureCRT.

SecureCRT doesn't provide any way (scripting or otherwise) within the application to control TCP time-out values. These TCP connection time-out values are inherited from the operating system on which you've installed and are running SecureCRT.

I'll add a feature request for you, and should a version of SecureCRT ever become available that provides the ability to control the TCP connect time-out within the application, we'll post a notice here. If you'd like email notification of such an occurrence should it ever happen, please send email to support@vandyke.com with a subject of "ATTN: TCP timeouts, please - Forum thread #13217"
