Hi,

You can set connection timeout in connection string as:

;Connection Timeout=30
<connectionStrings>
<add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=servername;Initial Catalog=databasename;Connection Timeout=30;User ID=userid;Password=*****" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>

The value set in the Connection Timeout property is a time expressed in seconds. If this property is not set, the value for the connection is the default value (15 seconds).

Moreover, setting the timeout value to 0, your attempt to connect waits an infinite time and it should be avoided in a ConnectionString because an attempt to connect waits indefinitely.
