Enabling remote access to NZB 360 is quite easy, and completely free. Follow the steps below to enable remote (3G/4G/LTE) access to NZB 360.Step 1: Create Dynamic DNS Address
A dynamic DNS address allows you to have a URL point to your home. Every modem receives an IP address from your ISP, but that IP address may change often. A dynamic dns address allows you to access your home's IP address, even if it changes.
First, head over to http://noip.com
and create an account. Once you have that setup, add a new "host."Hostname:
this is what you want your no-ip.org url to look like. For example, adding "myaddress" in this field would give you a URL of "myaddress.no-ip.biz"IP Address:
Leave this blank for now.
Once those are added, click on "Create Host" at the bottom of the page.Step 2: Add Dynamic DNS info to router
In order for your dynamic dns address to stay in sync with your IP address, it must be updated. Most modern routers have this functionality built in. Simply Google how to enable Dynamic DNS for your router model and follow the instructions.Step 3: Enable reserved DHCP address for computer running Usenet services (SAB, CP, SB, etc)
Most of the time, a router will automatically assign a computer an IP address at random. This creates a problem in the next step, so we want to keep this computer's IP address static. You can do this in your router as well.
Simply Google how to reserve an IP address for your router model. You will need your computer's MAC address that is running the usenet services. Enter in the MAC address and specify which IP address you would like that PC to have (usually 192.168.X.X). Once you enable that in your router, restart your router and your computer.Step 4: Forward the correct ports
By now, we have a no-ip URL, and a reserved IP address for the PC running the usenet services. Now we need some way to talk to the computer when you visit the no-ip address. Port forwarding accomplishes this.
Simply Google how to port forward for your specific router model. All you're essentially doing with port forwarding is telling your router to talk to a specific computer when a certain port is reached.
For example, SABnzbd's default port is 8085. In your router, you will want to forward port 8085 to the reserved IP address you set up for your computer in Step 3.
You can test if this is working by visiting your no-ip address and specifying a port. For example, if you forwarded port 8085 to your computer running SABnzbd correctly, then visiting http://youraddress.no-ip.org:8085
should bring you to your SABnzbd web configuration.Step 4: Add this info into NZB 360
NZB 360 supports both local and remote addresses. You'll want to add both to make your local requests much faster and efficient.
Comma-separate your local IP address and your no-ip address in the IP/Host field in NZB 360, like so:
You should then see NZB 360 recognize these addresses as local and remote.
Also, make sure to add in your SSID for your local network (home) so NZB 360 knows when to use your local address.
That's it! You now have the ability to use NZB 360 both locally and remotely, anywhere in the world.
