1.54 DNS issues again

so I go and attempt to try the pcloud dedupe by hash but again oddly I get 2021/02/02 ERROR : My Pictures/2013/03/2013_03_04_05.mp4: Failed to hash: failed to get hash: Get "https://api.pcloud.com/checksumfile?fileid=11585862595": dial tcp: lookup api.pcloud.com: no such host

which points to DNS issues, last time around I updated my network settings to use google DNS which "resolved" the problem. This time they are still set to google dns but I'm still seeing this issue.

You'd want to check your machine and just validate DNS is working.

Like the previous error, it isn't really a rclone item but a local config thing in regards to DNS.

Perhaps check your router/machine/etc and restart some things.

Thanks - I'll keep poking around - this resolves each time without issue https://api.pcloud.com/currentserver

It will show them all at the end. The docs should probably mention this!

Made sure I had both ipv4 and ipv6 DNS pointing to google - process ran successfully overnight.
