Create onedrive via terminal without gui

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Could not create new remote onedrive via ubuntu server terminal.. I couldn't open web link because there is no gui. I also open port 53682 and opened link from my pc with device ip address which rclone installed but it is saying connection refused.

is there any way to create onedrive witholut gui?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

ubuntu server 18.04.5

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


hello and welcome to the forum

when doing the rclone config, did you choose N

Remote config
Use auto config?
 * Say Y if not sure
 * Say N if you are working on a remote or headless machine

You must access URL from a browser on the same host where rclone is running. For example If you're running rclone on a VM then browser should also run from inside VM, not from your PC which is hosting the VM.

No need to open ports for localhost.

As a workaround you can install rclone on a completely different device with a gui browser, config Onedrive there then copy rclone.conf file into headless machine

I missed that line, my mistake. thank you very much.
