#2980 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Ftp connection retry

I love Cyberduck for its simplicity of use. When uploading a bigger set of files to my (rather cheap) webhosting service, it often happens that a transfer cannot be completed.

I have now switched to using FileZilla when I need to upload a lot of files because I love FileZillas robustness: When a file transfer fails, FileZilla retries. When the retries fail, the file is added to a 'failed transfers' queue and I can still retry to upload it manually. When the server logs me off accidentially (yes, that does happen), FileZilla logs me back in.

I am certainly not trying to bash on Cyberduck - I like Cyberduck and will in fact continue to use it. But please make the FTP connections more robust by automatically re-trying failed transfers/connections.

There is such a feature. See the Connection Preferences. Does it not work as expected?
