    Opener to Remote - how to timer abort if unavailable

    cortical

      FM11 mac + win

       

      A simple normal openener file to open a remote file.

       

      For testing I entered the ip for the eventual win server ( the in service database) and my local test server in the EDS File path list

      So if it can't find the first path ( the client location server), it should fall back to the next choice ( my local server)

      Target A - the clients server

      Target B - my LAN test server

       

      It does, eventaully. This takes a (timed) minute, all the time with a spinning pizza wheel. Activity Monitor shows FM 'not responding' - which initiall I assumed was a legitimate hang, and forced quit multiple times.

      A wait of this duration, should it occur, is going to be an issue

       

      An added trap for an error result has not yet returned a result; so no telling how long that may take if it can't find either target

       

      I would like to time it to say 20 seconds, no connection, abort at 20 seconds

       

      Any suggestions for adding a timer?
