Are you saying that the GETMETADATA request is timing out? Can you set your connection timeout to a higher value and try again? Also how are you pulling the metadata and what RETS version?

When I attempt to pull the data, it first fetches the metadata, however it times out on that process which causes a failure, I am using RETSconnector I don't see a setting to increase timeout value.

In the task on the General tab, there is a HTTP Timeout value for each search. Try setting it high like 2000.

finally pulling looks like huge timeout might solve it monitoring now

That site has a lot of metadata. It looks like RETS Connector pulls it in Xml which is about 94 MB. Compact format is about 33 MB.
