what value of urlString are you using?

Is it definately in the form: "http://<hostname or IP>[:<port>]/<page
to request>"

Hello, I have getResponseCode and connect() prob here... I want to
connect then get the response code of the remote server. It's been
almost 12 hours but I havent been connected and the server has not
given me a response... I set the time out but it seems not to work..
(Time out is set to 10 seconds.) Here's my code:

System.setProperty( "",
Integer.toString( 10000 ) );

URL url = new URL(urlString);
URLConnection uc = url.openConnection();
HttpURLConnection hc = ((HttpURLConnection)uc);

hc.setRequestProperty("Accept","image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg,
image/pjpeg, application/x-shockwave-flash, */*");
uc.setRequestProperty("Content-Type","xml/html; charset=utf-8");


// -- Check if the response code.
if (HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK == hc.getResponseCode() ||
HttpURLConnection.HTTP_MOVED_TEMP == hc.getResponseCode() )
    System.out.println("(Success) Responce Code: "+hc.getResponseCode());
    System.out.println("Responce Code: "+hc.getResponseCode());

// -- get headers
for (int counter=0; ; counter++)
    String name = uc.getHeaderFieldKey(counter);
    String value = uc.getHeaderField(counter);
    System.out.println(name+": "+value);

If u think that there's nothing wrong with the connect and
getResponseCode, please help me with the time out thing. Thank you...
