I am trying to post data to an HTTPS site.
I am using this code

try {
System.setProperty( "java.protocol.handler.pkgs" , "javax.net.ssl" );
java.security.Security.addProvider( new com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider() );
TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[] {
new X509TrustManager(){
public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers(){
return null;
public void checkClientTrusted( java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType ) { }
public void checkServerTrusted( java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType ) { }

SSLContext sc = SSLContext.getInstance( "SSL" );
sc.init( null, trustAllCerts, new java.security.SecureRandom() );
HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory( sc.getSocketFactory() );

URL url = new URL("https://www.google.com/adsense");
HttpURLConnection m_oHttpURLConnection = (HttpsURLConnection) url.openConnection();

m_oHttpURLConnection.setDoInput( true );
m_oHttpURLConnection.setDoOutput( true );
m_oHttpURLConnection.setUseCaches( false );
m_oHttpURLConnection.setRequestProperty( "Content-Type", "text/xml" );
// m_oHttpURLConnection.setAllowUserInteraction( true );
m_oHttpURLConnection.setRequestMethod( "POST" );
// m_oHttpURLConnection.setInstanceFollowRedirects( true );


} catch (Exception e){

executing this code I am getting Connection Timeout error,
java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect

What is causing the timeout is not obvious from your code. See the comments at setReadTimeout

Some non-standard implementations of setReadTimeout ignore the timeout. The code may be not calling the server correctly. Has it worked before ? There are several possible matters involved.
