Cannot Connect to SABnzbd

I have SABnzbd set up at 192.168.1.102:8090 for web interface, listen at 0.0.0.0:8080. I have programs linking to it at 192.168.1.102:8080. In any program I try to link to it (Sonarr or CouchPotato) it will not connect when I test it, leading me to believe it's an issue with SABnzbd. It has never worked on this installation. All settings are default.

In Sonarr I get the following:
20-6-29 13:10:57.3|Warn|NzbDroneErrorPipeline|Invalid request Validation failed:
-- Unable to connect to SABnzbd
-- Test was aborted due to an error: Unable to connect to SABnzbd, please check your settings

CouchPotato simply states:
06-29 13:30:32 INFO
[hpotato.core.plugins.base] Opening url: get http://192.168.1.102:8080/api?output=js ... de=version, data: []

In the SABnzbd logs I don't see anything about an attempted connection. Can somebody offer any guidance for where to start looking? I've been slamming my head against this for two days on a fresh install. I'm worried there's something obvious I'm just not seeing.

Huh? 8090 or 8080 ... which is it?

The web interface is on port 8090, should the port to listen for be the same one?

If I set the listen port to 8090 I can't reach the web interface.

In the sabnzbd.log, find these two lines:

My local IPv4 address =

and

ENGINE Serving on

Post those full lines here.

I see the problem, but I have no idea where it was set to a 172. address

Okay, manually set the IP for the jail it's running in to 192.168.1.103. IPv4 is now showing as 192.168.1.103. ENGINE Serving on http://0.0.0.0:8080.

Changed both CP and Sonarr to 192.168.1.103 for host for SABnzbd, no connection still.

And somehow in the last twenty minutes it decides to work. No rhyme or reason. I'll consider myself fortunate. Thanks for the assistance!
