What version of RME are you using? What protocols are you using to deploy the images (i.e. telnet/TFTP, SSH/TFTP, SSH/SCP, etc.)? At what point does the timeout occur?

Is it possible to upgrade a device with telnet / tftp?

We had the same issue with 3560 switches and running IOS 12.2(46)SE.

A TAC service request give us information that there are several big bugs in that IOS with SSH.

Workaround for us is to upgrade all devices by using telnet.

In our case it is not a problem of RME!
