One of the client is having an issue with HttpWebRequest. They are trying to throw Request Timeout error in case they don't receive the response within 60 seconds. Even though the timeout is set, there are no timeout exception after the specified time.
public async Task<bool> ExecuteRequest(string request, IDictionary<string, string> headers, string url, HttpResponseEventHandler handler)
WebResponse webResponseResult = null;
ResponseCode status = ResponseCode.NotConnectedToNetwork;
ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = delegate
CreateWebRequest(url, headers, null, null, HttpVerbs.Post);
Task<WebResponse> asyncResult = httpRequest.GetResponseAsync();
webResponseResult = await asyncResult;
status = (ResponseCode)((webResponseResult as HttpWebResponse).StatusCode);
catch (WebException webException)
catch (Exception exception)
private HttpWebRequest CreateWebRequest(string url, IDictionary<string, string> headers,
string userName, string password, string requestMethod = "POST")
httpRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
httpRequest.Timeout = 60000;
foreach (var key in headers.Keys)
httpRequest.ContentType = "text/xml; charset=utf-8";
httpRequest.Accept = "text/xml";
httpRequest.Method = requestMethod;
if (userName != null && password != null)
httpRequest.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(userName, password);
I have checked this issue with the help of sample app attached in comment 1 and not able to reproduce it. I observed that when I click on Button it does not able to find the given url(http://192.168.1.2/Api/Values/1). And after 1 or 2 minute we get the Connection Timeout exception.
Please refer the screencast:
Please review the screencast and let us know what additional steps we need to
follow to reproduce this issue.
Also, It would be great If you provide log details also. You can find xamarin log details from VS menu HELP -> Zip Xamarin Log and output log details form VIEW -> Output.
