Hi guys, 

First, Merry Christmas to you guys. :)

I need some help on this, I'm in the middle of migrating my .NET codes to
Mono, but i keep getting "The request time out" when i'm running the
following code.

I've gone through stackoverflow, google and could get a clear answer.

The following code is running perfectly in .NET codes, but keep throwing
time out exception.

*My code*
string postData = "{\"name\": \"My Name\",\"age\": \"234\"}";
HttpWebRequest webRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest;

webRequest.Timeout = 120 * 60000; //mins * milisec
webRequest.ReadWriteTimeout = 120 * 60000; //mins * milisec
webRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Post;
webRequest.ContentLength = postData.Length;
webRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";

using (StreamWriter writer = new
using (HttpWebResponse resp = webRequest.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse)
// do something

Thank you in advance. :)
