What port does rclone use for syncing to google drive?


#1

I need to allow a pass thru rule in my firewall but I don’t know what port it should be.


#2

Https I believe. 443.


#3

That is correct. Everything is done via https.


#4

great. thank you! i can use this for bandwidth control on my router too. that way rclone doesn’t kill my network…


#5

Did you discover the --bwlimit`option? That might be easier.


#6

Yes but I don’t want to limit speed. I just want to make it so when/if other devices on my network are using the internet then they take priority. That way if nobody is using the internet rclone will go full speed ahead captain.


#7

As far as I know the only way to do that is using QoS in your router. --bwlimit is helpful though - if you set it a bit below what your link is capable of then at least everything will share nicely.


#8

Yes. That is what I am doing right now and using that signal hack to stop the limit and then restart it. And yeah, I am going to put openwrt on my router so I can set up QoS.

Does S3 also use https?


#10

Yes it does. I think all the cloud remotes except http/ftp/sftp use https.
