Set up Qnap NZBGet for the newsgroups

Set up NZBGet on a Qnap tutorial Let’s set up the NZBGet program. To download from the newsgroups.

Open your browser and go to http://ip-address-qnap:6789. The username and password is what you specified during the installation.

If you haven’t done this. Then by default this is the username nzbget. And the password is nzbget.

nzbget settings Qnap NZBGet instellen

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

Now we go to the tab PATHS. You can find this on the left.

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

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 make this up yourself.

levelThe first news server is always 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 with the 2nd level.

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

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 no one can see what you download. Only your Newsserver provider if they keep logs.

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 If you use SSL. Then tick this box.

Connections 4 is plenty. And then you often have some left over for other things. Like SpotWeb for example.

RetentionThe retention can often be found on the website of your Usenet provider. Today it is more than one year.

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. Or a Block account from another Usenet provider, as a backup.

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 setting up Qnap NZBGet. And you can download it now from the newsgroups.
