I did this

I used libcurl to download over a very slow (but stable) TFTP link, and it keeps timing out after 3600 seconds aka 1 hour.
Then I set the option to be 0 curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 0L); it still times out after 3600 seconds.
So I thought it might have to do with the server timing out after 1 hour, but when setting the CURLOPT_TIMEOUT to 4000, it times out after 4000 seconds.

I wish to timeout using the stability of the connection aka CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT and CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_TIME, both of which are also set

I expected the following

According to CURLOPT_TIMEOUT and CURLOPT_TIMEOUT_MS documentation, the default should be 0 and if it is 0 it should never time out
