NZBGet on Chromebook

Post by zizoom » 10 Jan 2020, 17:00

Hi there,

First thanks for all your work on the port for Android.

I searched if this has been discussed before, but does it work the same on Android or Chromebooks or are there any workarounds to make it work ?

I'm on an ASUS C433T and in Developer mode, and everything seems to work fine, till I start the Daemon.
At this point I have a notification saying it's running in background, but when I click the wep app button it says that there is nothing in this adress. Like if the server didn't start (tried localhost and 127.0.0.1 and both don't work).

Any info or idea there ?

Thanks in advance :)

If you press SEARCH + ESC (so: taskmanager), do you see nzbget running?

Which URL do you use trying to access nzbget?

Hi seems like yes it is https://drive.google.com/open?id=108PWk ... NI2X5z1zQN

When I click on show web-interface I have "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED".

localhost:6789 is the adress it points to.

Maybe something to do there :/

I'm typing this on a Chromebook, but I'm reluctant to go into developer mode to try myself.

So ... long shots:

As you're running nzbget-for-Android on ChromeOS ... maybe that's inside a VM / container, so thus not reachable from the host ChromeOS.

In the Chrome browser, type chrome://system/ and go down to 'netstat', and click expand. Do you see anything listening on port 6789?

To test some things, I installed a "webserver for chrome": https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... gigb?hl=en I clicked on the logo, and then connected to http://127.0.0.1:8887/, and the in the chrome://system/ -> netstat I did see `tcp LISTEN 0 128 127.0.0.1:8887 `.
So ... that is a good reference / method. Do you see `tcp LISTEN 0 128 127.0.0.1:6789 `. If not, nzbget is not running (well).

For reference

On ChromOs / Chromebook, to see open ports aka listenings ports:

chrome://system/ and then netstat then expand then search for LISTEN:

Code: Select all

tcp    LISTEN     0      16     127.0.0.1:5550                  *:*                   users:(("arc-networkd",pid=1907,fd=11))
tcp    LISTEN     0      128    127.0.0.1:8887                  *:*                   users:(("chrome",pid=1556,fd=46))

FWIW:

I just tried, and running nzbget in the Linux subsystem on Chrome (see https://support.google.com/chromebook/a ... 5439?hl=en for instruction) ... just works!

Proof: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d4ThS ... 4C6QeeIEYL

So maybe that is solution for you?

Code: Select all

tcp    LISTEN     0      128    127.0.0.1:6789                  *:*                   users:(("chunneld",pid=24419,fd=11))

So ... via the Linux subsystem?

About USB:

Maybe:

1)
chrome://flags/#crostini-files

Crostini Usb Allow Unsupported
Allow mounting unsupported Usb devices in Crostini. At your own risk. – Chrome OS

#crostini-usb-allow-unsupported

or

2)
Settings -> Linux (Beta), and then

USB preferences
Give Linux apps permission to access USB devices. Linux won't remember a USB device after it's removed.
Only Android devices are currently supported.
Available USB devices will appear here.
