Version: 5.6.9+dfsg-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I was getting timeout on login for odbc_connect when connecting to SQL Server 2000 + 2005,
usually to fix such an issue I set the login timeout during connect.

I was expecting to find something that could allow me to set login
timeout in php.ini,
or a timeout value in odbc.c like:

but I failed to find an option or a refernce on how I can modify the login

the suggested solution on MSDN for such an error is to drop
odbc_connect/pconnect and switch to sqlsrv_connect[1].

As I understand odbc_setoption should be called after the login had been done,
otherwise I don't see how I can access the connection handle, before doing odbc_connect.
