No at all. This message states there is a problem with the communication
between the client and server, the UPS is not involved here. So
increasing the timeouts is not going to help.

This page recommends a solution to a problem that no longer exists in
this form anymore. No matter how slow your UPS is in responding, the
communication between driver-server and server-client should never
timeout because of it. If it does, there is a problem in the driver (it
is not responding to a PING from the server in time, which must never
happen). We've had some problems with this lately, but these should be
resolved by now. If you still see the exact message, please tell us.
Best regards, Arjen
