socket connect takes too long to fail

When socket connect function (client to server) fails with
intended server on same domain, connect fails quickly. But
when intended server is on different domain, connect takes
a long time to fail, perhaps over thirty seconds.

While this timeout is occurring, entire process appears
stalled, not just the thread performing the connect.

Any way to accelerate the error return for connect?

Running Win2000 SP3.

Thanks.
