Adding NZB from a URL using command line

Post by buggy13 » 22 Dec 2018, 08:10

Hi,

i can add a nzb file to the queue when the file is already downloaded with

Code: Select all

nzbget -A T N my-download file.nzb
The nzb is added at top of the queue with the name 'my-download'. But this doesn't work when i add an url

Code: Select all

nzbget -A T N my-download server/file.nzb
NZBget adds the nzb to the queue and after a few moments its deleted. In history the nzb is marked as skipped. When i try the option I instead of N it works

Code: Select all

nzbget -A I 900 server/file.nzb
Maybe this is because NZBget interprets the name as path/url to the nzb file?

Skipped means the downloaded file wasn't nzb-file. Most likely it was a html-file containing error description. Try the same URL in a browser with incognito mode to make sure no login is invisibly sent to indexer.

The URL works when i don't use the command with option N <name>. The URL is the same every time i try it. It works when i try 'nzbget -A url' and 'nzbget -A I 900 url' but not 'nzbget -A N name url'. So the URL is the same every time.
