A log from the command that you were trying to run with the -vv flag

rclone config

error.txt (6.1 KB)

That's really the main reason we use the help and support template.

Seems you might be running Linux? Are you running the browser on the same machine? What firewall? What OS?

Why wouldn't use you use the help and support template? :frowning:

I did use the template. Sorry I removed the headings. I will leave them next time to avoid this.

I am running rclone on linux (jupiter notebook workspace. I am running the notebook on my local's Chrome browser (windows11)

You did not unfortunately.

Missing rclone version output..

If you not running the rclone config on the same machine you are using the browser, you need to use the remote setup docs:

Remote Setup (

The rclone.conf is portable so it can be copied from one machine to another as well as many people do that if they aren't comfortable wih the remote bit.

ok got it. i wont miss the template next time. thanks for the link i will check it out

Hopefully you are using the current version, older versions had some changes to registration so that's why I was asking.

ok worked! I wasnt following the last step correctly
I am now using remote step with local browser.
all good.

much appreciated
