It seems apropos to close a timed out connection and allow retry logic to attempt reconnection. That this situation has resulted in a 408 Request Timeout response status code [1] is provided to the requestor, after retries have failed, seems good

And the Magic 8 Ball says…Outlook good! 😊

Have a good one; keep it, light.
