Web Protection: HTTP Connection Timeout Configuration

As some websites require content delivery by backend database servers the connection timeout between a very active server and a slow database can result in a page timeout.

By default the ASG http proxy has a value of 60 seconds before closing the connection. Currently this is only configurable to a higher value in cc, please place an option for this in the advanced tab.

        +4 I can't believe this isn't an option. Like, seriously? This makes Sophos seem like a consumer grade product not being able to allow this.

        This fixed timeout is not helpful if you invoke long-running reports, SQL queries, or backup scripts.

        It also seems to interfere with something in Windows Live.

        +3 from me. This has been the bane of my life since Squid was silently replaced with the proprietary proxy.

        Also, Squid is tolerant when the amount of data sent by the HTTP server doesn't match what's in the HTTP header (it still displays the content) - the Astaro proxy displays an error (or it used to). I'd like to see this become a option on the proxy configuration.
