[Errno 49] Address not available

I've been running sabnzbd (ver 2.3.9) for quite some time on a TrueNAS (ver 12.0-U4) box without an issues. Just recently it stopped working. From the Test Server button on the Server SABnzbd Config page I get the " [Errno 49] Address not available, Check for internet or DNS problems" message.

The install of sabnzbd on my Windoze 10 machine works just fine so I don't think it's an issue with logging into my news server.

I have no idea what might have changed in my setup. Any ideas on where I might start looking?

Two possible causes:

Your DNS is not working. Check in SABnzbd: Wrench symbol -> Status -"> "Nameserver / DNS Lookup" ... what does it say?
You've filled out a newsserver name that does not resolve. Easy test: add a server "" and click on Test Server.
