This guide will walk you through setting up SABnzbd to work with UseNetServer news servers. If you haven’t already signed up for Usenet access then take a look at UNS. They offer high binary retention, 20 connections, SSL encryption and servers in the US and Europe. NGR visitors receive a special price of $10/mo. or $95/yr.

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 UseNetServer. Enjoy!
