Abstract

The TCP Abort Timeout Option allows conforming TCP implementations to exchange requests for individual, per-connection abort timeouts. The TCP abort timeout controls how long transmitted data may remain unacknowledged before a connection is aborted. TCP implementations typically use a single, system-wide timeout value. Using individual, per-connection timeouts allows established TCP connections to survive extended periods of disconnection.
