soap:Fault - Operation Timed Out

I need to communicate with a third party webservice from whom I got the WSDL file. I used WSAD to generate client using this WSDL.
However, when I try to communicate with this webservice I get the following error.

<faultstring>Operation Timed Out</faultstring>

I am not sure how to increase the time out value. It seems that the current (probably default) timeout value is 90 seconds.

I tried to increase the timeout using -
SOAPHTTPConnection soapHTTPConnection = new SOAPHTTPConnection();

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to help much.

Any ideas, how I can fix this problem?

That may be the HTTP timeout, which is most likely different from the SOAP timeout. Check this recent thread for some hints.
I agree. Here's the link:
