Well yes, but people understand if the computer tries connecting for 1m
and then says 'Sorry, this is not possible'. 

But if the transfer does work after waiting 1m, and that delay occurs
for every single connection, people get annoyed. And in my experience,
most of them will blame such delays to 'slow networks', and won't look
for some 'I am behind a firewall' configuration.
