Rclone Hide traffic GDRIVE

Hello good day. I have a problem. I'm uploading files to gdrive with rclone. and i do this file upload with vps server. but the service provider google restricts me for sending a lot of data because i have a lot of traffic. I'm wondering if there is a way to hide my Traffic which is Google. Please I would be glad if you could help me.

hello and welcome to the forum,

what does that mean?

what do you want to hide and what do you want to hide from, the vps, google or what?
if the contents of the files, then use rclone crypt remote.

when you posted, there was ta template of questions.
please help us to help you and provide the answers.

I am using Ubuntu 20.04 vps server. I am using rclone version 1.59. My request is exactly that the service provider cannot see that I have uploaded files to google. I want, so can I hide the traffic? how can I do it? I am giving an example. Let the service provider see that I have uploaded a file. but the service provider won't see that I have uploaded it to gdrive.

rclone cannot hide traffic, it copies from source to dest.

to hide traffic, can use a vpn.

Is it possible to hide with a proxy? Terabytes are terabytes too. and vpn can remove it?


vpn or no vpn, the amount of data transferred would not change.
the vps would not know the destintation is gdrive.

How can I use proxy with rclone? is there a document?

yes, on the rclone doc page.

Which should I use https or http for gdrive?

try using both - http and https

Hello, I'm stuck with something, can you help me?
I set up a vpn server of my own using openvpn, but as I mentioned, since I work with the server company, when I open vpn on vps, my connection with ssh2 is lost. I cannot access the machines again because I opened vpn. I wonder how I can use this openvpn to encrypt rclone traffic only. do you have any idea?

--- perhaps tailscale, should be able to work around that.

--- if using openvpn, make sure the local openvpn ip address is not the default route.
and then use the rclone flag --bind to force rclone to use that ip address.

dev tun

-----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1-----
-----END OpenVPN Static key V1-----

I have no idea how to do it. When I connect to vpn, all traffic flows over vpn. I shared the openvpn conf file with you above, do I need to add a setting here?

so i am not an expert with openvpn,
but since i usually have multiple openvpn connections at the same time,
for sure, i do not want the default route to internet to point to any of those vpn ip address

and on windows, i use viscosity openvpn client, has gui and advanced features.

adding these values work for me.

pull-filter ignore redirect-gateway
pull-filter ignore route-ipv6
pull-filter ignore ifconfig-ipv6
pull-filter ignore "redirect-gateway ipv6"

you can setup 2 docker containers, rclone as docker and pia-vpn ([itsdaspecialk/pia-openvpn]) for privateinternetaccess vpn service, and configure the rclone container to go through the pia-vpn
you can use docker compose to setup the local network

add for the rclone container

network_mode: "service:pia-vpn"
- pia-vpn
