sabnzb usenet software and a nas?
hi to all.
trying to direct downloads with sabnzb to go to my nas-a qnap ts201
os is win7 64 bit
i believe i am using the proper syntax for the path which is this
it however does not recognize this and just default saves to its folder in my docs
any users here who could share a tip about this is much appreciated.
just started trying out usenet,and wow,much better than torrents for sure
SABnzbd+, SickBeard and CouchPotato have made me a very happy camper I must say! :biggrin:
I have a machine with SABnzbd+ and I've setup FreeNAS on it in a virtual box. If your computer downloading can access the NAS, like simply look for the folder and try to copy some small files from your computer to the NAS. If this works, SABnzb should technically be able to download there. Make sure everything works before and it should be a breeze to do the final setup after!
the nas is properly recognized on my computer for any other transfers to etc,but like i said sab just ignores my file path name and reverts back to my docs!
Perhaps make sure the NAS has a static address and use the ip address in the file path instead of the name, for some reason sometimes the DNS can be picky <- Read broken.
if // network paths do not work, maybe try mounting the folder via "map network drive" then direct sabnzbd+ to the virtual drive path
EDIT: oh also you need to clear and stop your sab queue before making any changes to the sab paths configs, and possibly restart sab after changes
thanks for replies.
will try the ip address,instead of the name
will report back
well i am stumped now.
tried the ip address and of course the mounting the folder,but sab just reverts back to the default path.
you could try shutting sab fully down, then editing the config file manually, it is located
