IME, the most likely cause is not the connection being timed out but a badly configured firewall with an overflowing state table.

comment Authenticate tracking device with TCP server
@jskidd: your data exchange is at least 1 RTT after the handshake, regardless of base protocol. TLS can be done in one RTT but it's very difficult, so that's a minimum of 4 rtts. There are a whole load of engineering problems to solve here and you are jumping straight to a solution.

comment How do I execute a file under Linux Mint when it could be 'unsafe'?
I don't understand - kudos for admitting to it, but this is probably your biggest security problem right now. The question you've asked is, in my opinion, a duplicate of that which you identified yourself. You need to invest some effort in learning in order to protect your systems effectively.
