Rclone is a command-line tool for synchronizing files and directories to and from various cloud storage providers, as well as local file systems. It supports common operations such as uploading, downloading, and syncing files, as well as more advanced features such as server-side file modification times, partial syncs, and more.

How to configure rclone to work with Telnyx Storage


  1. Download and install the latest version of rclone here!

  2. Open your terminal. Run the command rclone config to create a new configuration file for Telnyx Storage

  3. For the first prompt, choose option n to create a new remote. Hit “Enter” to continue

  4. For "Enter name for new remote", type in any name that you wish! Hit “Enter” to continue

  5. For "Option Storage", choose option "5" (Amazon S3 Compliant Storage Providers including AWS, Alibaba, Ceph, …) and hit “Enter” to continue

  6. For "Option provider", choose option "25" (Any other S3 compatible provider) and hit “Enter” to continue

  7. For "Option env_auth", choose option 1 (Enter AWS credentials in the next step) and hit “Enter” to continue

  8. For "Option access_key_id", copy and paste your Telnyx API Key in this field and hit “Enter” to continue

  9. For "Option secret_access_key", the secret access key is not used by Telnyx Storage. However rclone will complain if this field is left empty. Type out anything you want here, as long as it doesn't include spaces, quoting, or special characters of any kind.

  10. For ​​"Option region", choose option 1 (Will use v4 signatures and an empty region.) and hit “Enter” to continue

  14. For "Edit advanced config?", type "n" (No (default)) and click “Enter” to continue

  15. For "Keep this "{{remote_name}}" remote?", type "y"(Yes this is OK (default)) and hit “Enter” to continue
