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 UseNetServer. Enjoy!
