Webservice <-> RFC Timeout

Hi experts, The scenario is Web Service (REST/POST) RFC. For large messages, it takes more than 60 seconds for SAP to process and send the response back. When this is tested in SOAPUI, I get SocketTimeException. Increasing the socket timeout in SOAPUI would resolve it. But the problem still happens for messages with larger volume of data that takes more than 2 minutes (sometimes 10 minutes) to complete. When it happens in SOAPUI, I usually get 'The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server' but when I check the actual message in SXI_MONITOR, it's still getting processed. After some time, it will actually complete. Has anyone encountered this issue before? Appreciate your inputs. Thanks!
