This guide will walk you through setting up SABnzbd to work with Easynews servers. If you haven't already signed up for Usenet access then consider Easynews. They offer 2,000 days of binary retention, SSL encryption and web Usenet access. Easynews is currently offering new customers a 14 day, 10 GB free trial so if you haven't signed up for Usenet access this is a great chance to get started.
Note: If you want to connect to Easynews web access then you do not need to setup a newsreader client. Instead follow one of these links to get started:
- http://members.easynews.com/global4/search.html (HTTP)
- https://secure.members.easynews.com/global4/search.html (SSL)
Step 1 - Install SABnzbd+
If you haven't already installed SABnzbd then visit the download site and grab the latest distribution.

Figure 4 - SABnzbd > News Server Information
The Add Server box includes everything you need to get up and running. Simply enter the information as follows:
- Host: news.easynews.com or secure.news.easynews.com (SSL)
- Port: use port 563 or 81 for secure or port 119, 22, 23, 53, 80, 110, or 443 for standard connections.
- Username: provided in email
- Password: provided in email

Figure 6 - SABnzbd > Quick-Start Completed
After the SABnzbd+ quick-start is complete the newsreader site will open. By default the address is http://localhost:8080/sabnzbd/. For Windows users the client will automatically associate nzb files with SABnzbd+ so you can simply double click a file and it will load into the queue for downloading. With built in par2, unrar and unzip support SABnzbd+ will take care of the rest.
It's that simple to configure SABnzbd+ for Easynews. Enjoy!
