libcurl and connection timeouts

I have app which connects to a ftp server every 30 seconds and download
files if there is any.
 I think due to some network changes libcurl fails to connect and i mostly
get the error " couldn't connect to server".
Sometimes "a timeout was reached" or "failed to receive data from peer".
 So i am wondering what is the default timeout value libcurl uses?
 I am guessing CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT is the option to use if i want to
control the timeouts?
