Sabnzbd setup with NZBgeek

Post by Africanadian » April 15th, 2019, 11:26 am

I have successfully set up NZBgeek in the past, but I switched hard drives and now have to do it again. I can't for the life of me remember how I set it up last time. I am stuck on the setup wizard where it asks for host, username, and password. I am assuming the username and password are my NZBgeek username and password. However I have no idea what to enter for host and I get either an authentication failure or an address not available failure when I test the server. Does anyone know what to enter for the host and if there are any other settings I have to change? Thanks.

In the wizard, SAB asks for your newsserver. And NZBgeek is NOT a newsserver, but an indexer ...

So: what is your newsserver ... ?
