What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive) google drive - remote seedbox, local unraid server

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I have a pretty good understanding of how to mount google drive to my machines here. I've been able to do that without issue. What I'm trying to do now, is mount my local unraid server to my seedbox. I have ssh access to the seedbox and full access to the unraid server. I'm struggling to figure out how to accomplish this. I've been searching for days and have not found something that makes sense to me. I could just be dumb. That is a distinct possibility lol.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

so rclone works:)

Maybe unraid or seedbox forums would be better place to seek answers?

curious, in that case, what do you need from rclone?

perhaps run an sftp server on unriad?
if not, can run rclone serve sftp or one of the other rclone serve commands

in either case, on the client, use rclone config to create a sftp remote that points to the sftp server.
then run rclone mount using that just created sftp remote

It's not that i can't get it to work. It's that i have no idea how to use rclone mount via sftp and I'm having issues understanding the documentation.

So, this is what my end goal is. I want to use the seedbox to download and seed, and I will have a script run on the seedbox to offload files down to my unraid server. I've been using rclone mount for google drive for a couple of years, this works great. I'm never shared from my local drive to a remote host. And never via sftp. The documentation isn't clear to me. So I was asking for some insights. That's all.

cool - but can you say what is problem with rclone? And then we can try to find some solution.

Honestly, i may be thinking about this the wrong way.

well, given that you have ssh access between server and client, then no need for rclone.

ok, you are already familiar using rclone, want to use sftp.
the odds are, the unraid is already running a built-in sftp server.

ok so you have one box where gdrive is rclone mount. Now where exactly sftp sharing comes to the scene?

You want some other box to connect to gdrive mountpoint over sftp?

I have no idea about unraid or plex but lets forget about some other programs for the moment.

Sometimes is is better to step back and remove complexity focusing on what is requirement.

I think i may be coming at this the wrong way. If i have ssh access to the seedbox, I should be able to mount the unraid server via sftp using rclone. The only thing I really need to do is get prep the server and create the mount. I apologize for wasting everyone's time. I was over thinking it.

no need to apologize. it is only teach we get all confused sometimes.
