can't access sabnzbd on other local computers or remotely

Post by rastoma »

Version: 0.5.4
OS: Win7 Ultimate 32bit
Install-type: Windows installer
Firewall Software: built in Windows fw
Are you using IPV6? No
Is the issue reproducible? yes

I posted an issue about not being able to get nzbmobile to connect from my Android phone.  I just tried to connecting from another local computer on my network and it times out.  I turned off Windows fw.  Port forwarding is enabled.  I have a static IP setup on my main PC running sabnzbd.

What should I try?

Which host address did you set in SABnzbd?
'localhost' isn't going to work, try 0.0.0.0

Excellent!  Thanks.

That fixed local machines and the nzbmobile app on my Android phone.

Is that in the FAQ or setup anywhere?  I thought it entered localhost automatically.  I sure wish I had seen this days ago before pulling all my hair out :)

Yes, it's in the SABnzbd setup: the setup will ask if you want to access SABnzbd only locally, or also remotely. To run the startup again, (re)move sabnzbd.ini, and start SABnzbd: the setup will pop up and will ask you about locally/remotely ...
Please don't send me unrequested PM's; the forum is the best way to communicate.
If someone helps you, please reply to that help.

Ok, thanks for the tip.  But so far, just changing localhost to 0.0.0.0. fixed it :)
