Ah, ok, at least that's how I get the login screen. The username is indeed: GUI but what is the password?
The password is whatever you set it to via the parameters:
OK, again a step further, but now the hint appears:
Of course, I have repeatedly pressed the login button
edit: I'm obviously too stupid today: you have to first press the verify and THEN the login button.
Thanks for your great help.
It's not super obvious to hit verify than login so it's a vey valid question
When you know the answer, any question seems silly so no worries at and happy it is working!
rclone rcd --web-gui in RClone 1.50 and got
Usage: rclone rcd <path to files to serve>* [flags] Flags: -h, --help help for rcd Use "rclone [command] --help" for more information about a command.

If I just run
rclone rcd I get
2019/10/26 10:23:22 Failed to start remote control: start server failed: listen tcp 127.0.0.1:5572: bind: address already in use
What I am doing wrong?
That should be
rclone rcd --rc-web-gui
That means you are already running an rclone with the
--rc parameter or an
127.0.0.1:5572 return no page at my browser.
Depending on how rclone was started it may not show a page there. What message did the browser show?
Just try-try until timeout (I am using Firefox 70 60bit on Ubuntu 16.04).
See if you can see another rclone running. Try
ps ax | grep rclone if running on linux, or look in the process manager on windows.
ps ax | grep rclone return:
5463 pts/17 Tl 0:00 rclone rcd 9757 pts/17 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto rclone
I killed this process ran
rclone rcd again and now the browser is returning
Not found text message for the
I did. Killing the process and re-running
rclone rcd --rc-web-gui.
Is it working now?
Yes, perfect now.
After the first use, at the second, the browser start to ask by user and password to access the page started by
rclone rcd --rc-web-gui command. I didn't define any. What should I use?
If you don't define any you need to keep the browser window open as username and password get auto generated and passed in.
Otherwise start with
rclone rcd --rc-web-gui --rc-user me --rc-pass password
I am not sure if this is relevant to this issue, but there was a weird bug I struggled with for a long time that made launching the web-UI act very weird...
Basically, only the rcd currently takes initiative to download the webUI files (which end up in the --cache-dir next to the VFS). Without these files you get weird crashing and 404's, and I was trying to launch it with only --rc-web-gui on a mount.
Since you've tried to use rcd from the start it probably isn't the same issue, but I'd advise just do a quick check that there does in fact exist a "webgui" folder in the relevant cache dir. I suppose if you don't specify any cache-dir in your rcd command then the default location would be used...
