SABNZBD will not allow remote access. (Not Firewall or Port

Post by jdogggg » June 18th, 2017, 6:40 pm

Hi All,

Been at this all day and I can't figure it out. Upgraded to windows 10 and am trying to set-up my usenet stuff again, but I just can't get remote access to work for SAB.

I've turned off Windows firewall and forwarded the correct port but still not working.

I'm thinking I've overlooked something in settings.

Here's my settings page: imgurDOTcom/a/5hcxo

Can you advise where I'm going wrong?

Thanks.

From what I can tell SAB is only listening on localhost (127.0.0.1) which means you can only access it locally from the machine where it is running. To get remote access (from elsewhere on the network) change the SABnzbd Host/Address to the address of your machine on the network (eg 192.168.1.100).

Actually you should set it to 0.0.0.0, which is what we recommend for external acces. The IP of the device also works, but that would stop working if your device gets a different IP.

Thanks Mate. Changing it to 0.0.0.0 worked.
