Unable to bind rclone to ipv4!

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am unable to use --bind correctly.. always end up with an error.. if my ipv4 address was 192.168.100.12, then what exactly is the command.. i have tried it this way [rclone --bind 192.168.100.12].. but its not working..

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

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

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

Rclone --bind 192.168.100.12

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

hi,
what is the exact command?
post the full output

edit:
as far as i know, --bind does not work on a rclone mount.
what are you trying to accomplish?

edit2:
please ignore edit:

It works on any command.

0.0.0.0 binds to all.

If you give an IP that doesn't exist, it'll error.

Copying files from remote to remote is way too slow.. read in a post here to bind rclone with ipv4 address to boost transfer speeds..

bind

yes, of course, i had a brain freeze. thanks.

so the source and dest are both in the cloud?

Yes.. but its very slow (1mbps) over local to remote as well..

--- what is the result of an internet speed test?

--- are the source and dest both from the same provider, gdrive?

--- at this point, if you could answer the questions in the help and support template.
