Short: `Run rclone listening to remote control commands only.`,

This runs rclone so that it only listens to remote control commands.
This is useful if you are controlling rclone via the rc API.
If you pass in a path to a directory, rclone will serve that directory
for GET requests on the URL passed in. It will also open the URL in
the browser when rclone is run.
See the [rc documentation](/rc/) for more info on the rc flags.
Run: func(command *cobra.Command, args []string) {
cmd.CheckArgs(0, 1, command, args)
if rcflags.Opt.Enabled {
log.Fatalf("Don't supply --rc flag when using rcd")
// Start the rc
rcflags.Opt.Enabled = true
if len(args) > 0 {
rcflags.Opt.Files = args[0]
s, err := rcserver.Start(&rcflags.Opt)
if err != nil {
log.Fatalf("Failed to start remote control: %v", err)
if s == nil {
log.Fatal("rc server not configured")
