What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I'm logging into a Cisco device that doesn't go directly to bash. I need rclone to login with user/password and then send "expert\n" and then it can copy things.
Can I do this? If yes then what flag am I failing to find?
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
- os/version: ubuntu 22.04 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.15.0-78-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.20.6
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
None, it's SFTP to a local device.
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone copy --max-age 1d --ignore-existing MY_DEVICE:/var/sf/backup/ ~/MY_DEVICE_Backups/
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
There are two other remotes that are fine and look nearly identical.
type = sftp
host = MY_DEVICE.ubcmain.com
user = admin
pass = NOT_THE_PASSWORD
md5sum_command = none
sha1sum_command = none

I'm skipping this because I know what the issue is and just need the solution. Can I make rclone login, then send a command, then do it's copy stuff?
EDIT: Upgraded rclone and updated the version info above.
First update your rclone to the latest version. You are using some ancient one.
rclone v1.63.1 has successfully installed.
Any reason apt-get puts in the old one? It said I was on the latest and piping websites to sudo bash is generally frowned upon.
Your linux distro maintainers are not doing good job:)
Now back to your problem. Do I understand it correctly that you can not use
sftp program directly? You have to
ssh to this cisco box - enter some extra commands - and then
sftp would work?
You know, I may not have been thinking this through as you're correct, and that doesn't sound like something that will work.
I was trying not to disable Cisco's shell as sometimes I need it, but maybe I just have to disable their shell. The only reason I'm doing rclone is because their sftp won't copy a 2GB file and their backups are over 2GB.
Just in case there is a work around:
If I SSH to the box and login I'm at Cisco's shell and I type
expert to get to linux. Is there any way to get rclone past that? I'm guessing not but maybe I'll get a pleasant surprise.
Ok I do not think rclone can do this as it does not support ChallengeResponseAuthentication ( first authenticate via standard public key authentication, and then only if that succeeds, attempt keyboard-interactiv) - so not possible to connect to SFTP with 2FA etc.
You cisco box sounds for me like some form of this type of authentication - depends how they implemented it.
You could try e.g. FileZilla which does support it.
