Configure NZBGet on Debian for downloading.

In this tutorial we will configure NZBGet on a Debian system. So that you can download from the newsgroups.

The users name and password. Is what you specified during the installation. If you have not done this. Then use default usernam nzbget and password nzbget.

nzbget settings

Once we’ve opened nzbget’s web page. Then we go to Settings.

Now we go to the tab PATHS. This can be found on the left.

Adjust MainDir (temporary location) and DestDir (final location) here. To the desired location to save your usenet downloads.

Now we go to the tab NEWS-SERVERS. You now need the data from the news server you use to download from the newsgroups. You can often find this data in the confirmation email from your news server.

See also here Freee usenet servers. I recommend adding as many news servers as possible. So that the chance increases on complete downloads.

Copy the data below.

Name You can come up with this yourself.

level The first news server is 0. If you add some free news servers, put it at 1 and the worst of these at 2. Then NZBGet will first try to download everything via the 0 server. If that doesn’t work with the 0 servers, NZBGet will try everything with level 1 and then the 2nd level.

Host This is the address of the news server You can, often find this in your confirmation email from your news server.

Port This 563 if you do use SSL.

If you do not use SSL, it is often 119.

The advice is to use SSL.

UserName You can often find this in your confirmation email from your Usenet provider.

Password You can also often find this in your confirmation email from your news server. Or it’s your email address.

Encrypt turn on, if you use SSL.

Connections 4 is enough. And then you often have something left for other things like SpotWeb for example.

Retention De retentie kan je vaak terug vinden op de website van je nieuwsserver aanbieder. Tegenwoordig is dit meer dan 1 jaar.

Click Test Connection. Now you can add even more servers. And I advise you to do that. Like your Internet service provider and free news servers. The chance is greater than. That if you download a nzb. That it comes in completely.

Now we go to the Tablad SECURITY.

Enter your desired username and password in ControlUsername and in ControlPassword. If this is still the default password nzbgnet.

You are now done with the configuration of NZBGet. And you can download it now from the newsgroups.
