Why cant I get the GUI interface to work - at all?

Hi guys.

Im trying to get the gui interface to work by following this guide:

https://rclone.org/gui/

I have made a Ubuntu server on my NAS running in VM. Everything is working . DL client.. plex.. rclone .

I want to access the gui on the LAN example 192.168.0.24:5572 . But nothing happends when I open my browser and go to that address. I have tried http and https, without http and https.. Nothing works.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

You haven't shared what you are running, what the command output was or any other relevant information.

Rclone v.1.50

Follow this guide as I posted Ani :slight_smile:

https://rclone.org/gui/

rclone rcd --rc-web-gui

And the output as shown on the gui link .

We can't see your keyboard or what you are typing.

If you can't post the commands you are using, the output and what the error is, we can't help you.

What more do you want me to post?

I did write the command. I did write what I did. I wrote from the start that I followed the guide from this site. The output is the exact same as the guide is showing.

What more do I need to post Ani? Please explain since i posted extactly what I typed in the terminal.

When you type it in, share the output:

felix@gemini:~$ rclone rcd --rc-web-gui -vv

As an example.

What are you typing into the browser specifically? What's the error that gets generated?

plex@IPTV:~$ rclone rcd --rc-web-gui -vv

2019/10/28 18:46:59 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.50.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "rcd" "--rc-web-gui" "-vv"]

And when I go the ip adress shown , nothing happens. If I use the local LAN IP of the VM server - which works fine with other applications , dont work either.
My browser just show that the adress is not working.

Means that only the localhost can access it so you can only access it from the same machine that is running it.

You can use something like:

--rc-addr :5572

and that will open it up for all systems to access it.
