libUrl tsNet and socketTimeoutInterval

The connection ID is only used/needed when you use the asynchronous commands of tsNet.

The synchronous commands like tsNetUploadSync or tsNetFileUploadSync or others (they are ending with Sync) do not use connectionIDs. And i assume that put URL and get URL are using the synchronous commands.

But we need a connectionID, so how do we extract a connectionID from put/get/set/ http urls? where we are targeting  browser widget on a card. Or a mobilePlayer?
