Network timeout (TLS) when downloading rclone binary


I experience TLS packet errors when attempting to download rclone from the website at not-fast speeds (50-100KBps). It’s weird since it’s such a small download. I noticed it because my connection where I’m at now is only 2mbps. The download fails in these tested scenarios:
osx10.10.5/safari latest
debian8/wget1.16 when throttled to 100KBps or less

Each failure happens at about 30-40 seconds.
Tried from 4 global network locations (2 in US)

However when I don’t rate limit it from my vps, it downloads fine at 5MBps. I’m guessing that means it’s just downloading it before whatever the problem is materializes.

Why is this happening on rclone website? I’ve never experienced this on other sites. Not great when trying to download trusted binaries and they fail/attempt to retry/and the error is TLS/security related (though it’s probably some other underlying issue).

Probably doesn’t help you atm, but i’d recommend you using homebrew to install rclone (brew install rclone) after you’ve installed homebrew.
