NewFs: ftpConnection Login: Please use AUTH TLS before logging in?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Hi I'm trying to upload from my dedicated server on the debian 10 system to my ftp but I get an error when I do the rclone sync command.
Use "rclone [command] --help" for more information about a command.
Use "rclone help flags" for to see the global flags.
Use "rclone help backends" for a list of supported services.
Command sync needs 2 arguments maximum
I'm not sure how to solve

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version )

I use the latest version

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

Débian 10

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


Thank you very much for your help the community


I think what you need to do is download the latest beta then try the explicit_tls = true flag instead of the tls = true flag.

I think that will work :crossed_fingers:

how do i install the beta by uploading the file and putting it on my dedicated server?

yes, you can copy the file to the computer you want to run rclone on.

I have unzipped the folder how do I do now to install it on my dedicated server?

there is no install needed.

just run a command such as
rclone version

but I have to put the version on the sftp of the dedicated server?

you wrote that the dedicated server is FTP, not SFTP

sorry dedicated SFTP so what do I put on the SFTP server?

up above in this post, you wrote

software debian 10

up above in this post, you wrote, that the server is FTP, not SFTP
and your config file is for FTP, not SFTP

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


the server where I install rclone is a debian 10 SFTP server and the recipient who will receive the files is an FTP server

sorry, still i am confused,

SFTP and FTP are not the same, not compatible with each other.
you need to use the same protocol on the server and client.

you need to pick one protocol and use it on both the server and client

but where I'm going to run the commands is on the sftp server?

you want to transfer files from a ftp server on the internet to your private sftp server?

not the inverse SFTP versus FTP

i am getting confused.

just run rclone on the destintation computer.

i re explain i downloaded the linux version of rclon on the site i want to know if i have to put the folder on the sftp server dedicated server or not? or i just execute the command with the version?

rclone copies files from source to destination computer.
run rclone on the destination computer.
