If you have SSH access to a Linux or MacOS system, on which you (want to) run SABnzbd, and you want to have full SABnzbd webGUI access, without further port forwarding ... you can!

Here's the howto:
From your Linux: set up a SSH session to your remote system (in this case: listening on port 22222 instead of standard SSH port 22), with a proxy listening on 1080 on this side,

Code: Select all

ssh  -D 1080  mysystem.remoteorg -p 22222
Then, in that SSH session, if needed, you can start SABnzbd. Make sure SABnzbd is listening on port (so --server
Keep this session open!

Again from your Linux, start your webbrowser, with proxy on localhost port 1080. For example with chromium:

Code: Select all

chromium-browser --proxy-server="socks5://localhost:1080"
In that browser, open SABnzbd on ... and you have SABnzbd webGUI access.
