Failed to configure token on lineageos14.1

Xiaomi Mi4w. Rclone on android nougat (lineageOS 14.1), installed using magisk, 0smosis busybox is installed as well. Using stock AOSP browser and ES File explorer Pro as well as terminal emulator from the playstore. Can get through installation process fine until it asks me to go to the web address (which it doesn't automatically redirect to my web browser). After typing in the address manually I go through the on screen process and it says successful, but after returning to terminal emulator I have the error Failed to configure token.

Any help appreciated apologies if it's a noob question, thank you.

Run as a headless setup and use a browser and paste in the token.

No sorry still getting the same error. What is the error actually implying? I had a hosts file adblocker installed (energized protection from magisk) but it still didn't work even after disabling it

If you pick headless and enter the URL into a working browser, you get a key. You can use the same browser you are posting here.

The error is saying whatever you are using can't connect out to the Interrnet.

I done this and I'm still getting the same error, after pasting the verification key into my phones terminal (which I got from my desktop web browser) it shows up with the same error as I got previously.

How do you get the same error if you pick headless and get a code from the browser? That doesn't make sense as it's a different path. Can you post a screenshot of what you are doing.

That means your machine after you enter the token can't get out to the Internet.

Are there no immediate solutions then? Thanks for taking the time to help anyway I appreciate it

It's not really a rclone thing to fix. I'm not familiar with Android nor what OS you are on other than it doesn't seem to get out to the Internet. You'd have to troubleshoot that and get that resolved.
