Default rclone, openbsd, sync only and all odt

Im attempting to reproduce my little documents backup system with rclone to a server
Im doing it under linux, like :
rclone sync -P /home/user/*odt server:/odt/
trying into openbsd :
rclone sync -P /home/user/*odt server:/odt/

results in:
rclone sync -P "/home/user/"*odt 'server:/odt <
rclone sync sourceath destath [flags]

--create-empty-src-dirs Create empty source dirs on destination after sync
-h, --help help for sync

Use "rclone [command] --help" for more information about a command.
Use "rclone help flags" for to see the global flags.
Use "rclone help backends" for a list of supported services.
Command sync needs 2 arguments maximum: you provided 3 non flag arguments: ["/home/user/abc.odt" "/home/user/def.odt" "server:/odt/"]

how could I get it solved?
I already tried with brackerts ".." or '..' for the server... or using ~/*odt or /home/*odt for the source part.. didnt worked..
thank you for helping!

I think you need the "" around the source part. The shell is interpreting the * and substituting multiple paths before rclone ever sees it. That's why rclone thinks it's seeing too many arguments.

See the flags page: https://rclone.org/flags/
and particularly the flags '--include'
