There are actually 2 ways to configure time out:
--- On the server side, you can set/change this time out in web.config See: <httpRuntimeexecutionTimeout="..."/>
--- On the client side, you can set Timeout property in class called SoapHttpClientProtocol

Service Timeout value can be set in three places
A. To increase the Timeout property of the Web service proxy.
MyServiceRef serviceRef= new MyServiceRef();
obj.Timeout = -1; // -1 for infinite or + any positive value in milliseconds
B. To Increase Increase timeout value in httpruntime tag in web/app.config of ASP.NET
<httpRuntime executionTimeout="<<milliseconds>>" />
C. To increase timeout value in httpruntime tag in web-config of Web Services
adviced locaiton is cliend side, don't play with at serverside. it might effect other clients.
