SABNZBD via VPN (IPVanish)

Post by the_eye6 »

I cannot get this combination to work; IPVanish and SABNZBD.
The IPVanish support staff reported:

The issue is most likely due to our NAT Firewall. All network communication that uses our service has to be compatible with NAT (Network Address Translation) since we use shared IP addresses to increase your privacy protection. One solution to get you going, is something that some applications have called NAT Compatibility. If your application has this option, you can turn this on and the application will allow repeated 2-way communication through our service. If your application does not have the NAT Compatibility option, you may want to find and download one that does.

Can anybody help?

In case you don't already know, there's no privacy need for a VPN with Usenet as all of the traffic is encrypted between you and your provider. Now if you're trying to use a VPN for some other reason, and just coincidentally want to run SABnzbd at the same time, then that's a different story.

What doesn't work?
SABnzbd cannot download from Usenet?
You cannot reach SABnzbd's web interface from other systems inside or outside your local network?

What happens exactly;

When I start VPN first, I can browse, read mail. etc.

When I start SABNZBD now, the interface won't start.
When I look at the task bar, I see that the icon is there and green, but no download is started and I cannot get
the interface up and running. Then when I stop IPVanish and start SABNZBD, then it works and dowloading starts.

Shall I post the logs?

Hope you can help,

KR,
Rob

I'm not sure which local addresses are still available when running VPN software.
To which host address does SABnzbd listen?

SABNZBD normally listens to : http://127.0.0.1:8080/,
but gets no connection.

Internet is connected via VPN.

The logs:

And if you fill out 0.0.0.0 a listening host?

I have had this setup running earlier on with no tweaks: Just standard Ipvanish and standard sabnzbd.
