With slow network connections the Remote Loader handshake is timing out too soon. Is there a way to increase the timeout?


There is a way in IDM 3.5.1 and newer. In the connection parameter on the Remote Loader side, put handshaketimeout=n, where n is some integer greater than or equal to zero. Zero means never timeout, non-zero is the number of milliseconds (i.e., 1000 is the default timeout value).
This change is made in the configuration file.  Currently there is a line that says:
connection "port=8090"
To add the new parameter, the line would be changed to something similar to this:
connection "port=8090 handshaketimeout=10000
