I wrote a tutorial about the remote connection in LibreOffice, see this article.
The main problem with LibreOffice development is the changes.
Now the feature Open remote is not working.
The bug is officially recognized and represented, see the page.
They inform us, see comment 31:

Well, it still doesn't work with LibreOffice Version: 126.96.36.199.beta1 (x64); I'm not providing screenshots this time since it's identical in everyway to my previous attempts. At the end of all the copy/pasting between LibreOffice and my browser to get all the relevant permissions, when I finally make the attempt to connect, I get the same message: The specified device is invalid.
Current system configuration of potentially relevant software:
Windows 10 Professional (x64) Version 1709 (build 16299.125)
Microsoft - OneDrive version 188.8.131.52 (x64)
LibreOffice Version: 184.108.40.206.beta1 (x64)
It's a common practice to see open-source software with bugs, most bugs are already available to users to avoid problems.
Most backup bugs are authentication and changes in development.
