 first I'd link to thank all the developers and the community surrounding
 CyberDuck. I'm a professional webdesigner and I couldn't live without it.

 Now let's go straight to the topic.
 Many users around the web have a problem with Cyberduck when dealing with
 cheap hosting service (e.g. aruba and many others for Italy). Uploading
 folders with several files and subfolders always results in "Read Timeout
 Error". In the log you can see the server not responding at any command
 given by the client. Eg. type 1, change folder.. no response. Some
 misconfigured hosts automatically start ignoring a connection sending too
 many commands at a too high rate.

 And no change in Cyberduck configuration seem to solve this.

 The problem disappears using FtpFox.
 The difference is that when a server is not responding anymore FtpFox,
 after a quite short timeut, sends a QUIT command and then immediately logs
 again in, restarting the upload from the point it was interrupted without
 first checking all the uploaded files modification dates. And this makes
 the magic: everything is uploaded correctly!

 I really hope this can help.
