Before we get started we’ll need to setup a usenet host and an nzb indexer.
A usenet host is going to keep track of all of the usenet posts. NZB are .rar compressed files that broken into segments that are small enough to post into usenet. So we’ll need a host that keeps a deep archive of usenet posts, doesn’t track user behavior as well as maintains a lenient policy to store content.
I use newshosting.com. You can use whoever you like. You’ll need the NNTP server address and your username and password to configure Sabnzbd.
You’ll also need an NZB tracker which tracks the NZB files that have been posted to usenet. It’s similar to a bittorrent tracker (if you’re familiar with those). I use nzbplanet. They have a very janky registration process which you’ll have to use because the free account doesn’t allow you the functionality you’ll need. There are other indexers, but I’m not going to review them or explain how to use them (because I’ve never used them). From here you’ll need an API URL and an API Key.
Once you’ve got these two services setup, we’ll move on to the Sabnzbd container install and configuration.
