How do I set timeout to JNDI lookup of WebLogic Server (WLS) using InitialContext?

I have an application that does JNDI lookup on a remote server. If that server is down, the Context.lookup call is not timing out.
I try setting the following -D parameters and restarting the instance, but it appears that Context does not honor the TCP/IP timeout values. The -D parameters added to the server startup script are as follows:
None of the above parameters helped.
The question is how to set a timeout value for an initialContext.lookup() call so that it will time out if the remote server doesn't respond within a specified period of time?
