How to force rclone mount traffic through a virtual network interface

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I want all of my rclone mount traffic to go through a specific network interface. I use gdrive and don't want to hit the rate limit. I also don't want to specify a bwlimit because I want to use my entire gigabit connection for download/upload speed. I am trying to use wondershaper as a solution for limiting upload speed to 8MB/s on a specific interface.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit

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

Google Drive

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


The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

hello and welcome to the forum,
these flags might help

Yeah, unfortunately bwlimit is for both upload and download speeds. I need to limit upload speed only.

However, your bind string link is more of what I'm looking for. Thank you! I'll check into this
