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 Supernews. Enjoy!
