Step 1

Download NZBGet for macOS, extract the .zip file and copy the program file to your applications folder.

Step 2

When opening the NZBGet you might get the error that "NZBGet" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

To add an exception for NZBGet, you can right-click on the application and select "Open" from the context menu.

Your Mac will now ask you if you want to open it anyway.

Step 3

You will now see a little icon near the wifi icon to manage NZBGet.

Step 4

Click here to open the web interface. We do recommend to bookmark this site. There is no GUI available, you can use the web interface only.

In the web interface, select Settings and then NEWS-SERVERS.

You can now test the connection using the button Test Connection.
