      Hi, Michael!

      Actually you have a couple of choices:

      you may pass transport dependent parameters right after endpoint
      address in proxy call:

      my $soap = SOAP::Lite
      -> proxy($proxy, timeout => 10)
      -> uri($uri);

      you'll find examples with this syntax with cookie_jar and options.

      you may also change it anytime after that, using transport() method:


      Any transport specific method (LWP::UserAgent in this case) you can
      call with both syntaxes. Hope it helps. Examples for both you may
      find in documentation and I set timeout in test suite to get answer
      quicker if other side is dead or unreachable.

      Best wishes, Paul.
