It looks like there actually are. But rpc2 seems to choose the lowest
setting that either the client or the server provides, so it needs to be
set on both ends.

For the server it is a setting in the configuration file,

On the client it is a command line option,

    venus -timeout 60

Another value to change along with this could be the number of retries
(the default is 5 retries). This shouldn't really be all that necessary,
it might only increase network congestion.

    venus -retries 10
