RE: Always get connection timeout

The option for defining the timeout is:

How, though, does that affect the calculation for Curl_timeleft()?
Because it doesn't even look at that. The initial value for timeout_ms
= 30000, which is correct. The result I'm getting from Curl_timeleft()
is ALWAYS 3532134. So, by subtracting that value from my timeout set, I
end up with -3502134 - and it thinks I'm outta time.

I've tried setting options to forbid reuse and force a fresh connect,
but that doesn't seem to change anything. I'm beginning to wonder if I
have some problem with Curl_tvnow() or something???

Are you using the right data type (i.e. a long) in the curl_easy_setopt
call setting the timeout?
