Ubuntu configure NZBGet for the newsgroups

In this tutorial, configure NZBGet Ubuntu. We are going to configure NZBGet to download from the newsgroups. Open your browser and go to http://your-address:6789. The user 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

If we have opened the NZBGet web page, we will then 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 downloads.

Now we go to the tab NEWS-SERVERS. You now need the data from the news server. Which 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 that you add as many news servers as possible. This increases the chance of complete downloads.

Copy the data below.

Name You can come up with this yourself.

level The first news server is 0 if you add a number of free news servers then set those to 1. And the worst of these to 2. Then NZBGet will first try to download everything via the 0 server. If that does not work with the 0 servers, NZBGet will try everything with 1 level and then 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 then nobody can see what you download only your Nieuwsserver provider if they keep logs.

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

Password You can often find this in your confirmation email from your news server or it is 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 that of your Internet 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 nzbget.

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