Question on Socket Timeouts

I'm new to network programming.
I have a question.
Can we set a timeout to limit how long a particular socket can read or
I have used a settimeout() function.
The settimeout() works fine as long as the client doesnt send any data for
The data that I receive in the server after accept()ing a connect() from a
client I check if the client is sending any invalid data.
I'm trying to ensure that a client sending invalid data constantly cannot
hold the server. So is there a way of saying I want the client to use this
socket for x seconds before I close it, no matter what data I receive?
Thanks in advance,
