The customer experienced with the following error message, always returned from the 'EAI HTTP Transport;' adapter call, used in custom business service to send HTTP-SSL (secured) GET request to external application:

"... 'HTTP Internet Exception during 'DataSend': 'The operation timed out', code: '12002' (SBL-EAI-04116)' ..."

The SSL-certificate was correctly installed on the Siebel Server machine (Windows 2000)

The same business service (same .SRF and same database) worked fine, when Siebel Dedicated Client used (at the Siebel Server)

The Siebel Server service was setup using the 'Local System Account' windows authorization..
