[R] Snow sockets

Greetings all. I am trying to run some stuff using the SNOW library on RH EL3 intel x86_64 and I am running into this error:

Error in unserialize(node$con) : error reading from connection

I am using sockets (not preferred but I can't seem to get rpvm or Rmpi either one to work on x86_64 for different reasons) and it seems to work well when the jobs are small, but it seems that they are timing out after only a short while if the work takes longer than a couple of minutes.

Is there a way to adjust the timeout for the socket without doing so in the snow source (which I am not entirely comfortable with)?
