cURL / GET via Base Elements plugin, large request = insufficient response

Hi there,


I am currently trying to access an API and import data into our FileMaker solution. The groundwork has been laid thansk to the Base Elements plugin and Dan Smith's JSON framework but I am hitting a wall here...


Single / small requests are being processed properly, I get the expected response / data back from the API and thus have to assume that the surrounding parameters are OK.


But upon initiating a rather  large request the result is insufficient (not empty though). The whole process is ran via a simple script, I'll outline the steps below.


I have already


- verified that the request is working correctly (via a, their free tool throws a timeout error though!)

- tried pausing my script for 60 seconds after making the call (no use)

- setting a high timelimit for cURL (default is infinite, so not very helpful I guess) and setting "TCP KeepAlive" to true


What can I do to wait for the response to fully go through (even if it takes > 1 minute)?


The script steps outlined:
