SABnzbd is an Open Source Binary Newsreader written in Python. It's totally free, incredibly easy to use, and works practically everywhere. SABnzbd makes Usenet as simple and streamlined as possible by automating everything we can. All you have to do is add an .nzb. This Docker includes OpenVPN to ensure a secure and private connection to the Internet, including use of iptables to prevent IP leakage when the tunnel is down. It also includes Privoxy to allow unfiltered access to index sites, to use Privoxy please point your application at

AirVPN users will need to generate a unique OpenVPN configuration
file by using the following link https://airvpn.org/generator/
- Please select Linux and then choose the country you want to connect to
- Save the ovpn file to somewhere safe
- Start the delugevpn docker to create the folder structure
- Stop delugevpn docker and copy the saved ovpn file to the /config/openvpn/ folder on the host
- Start delugevpn docker
- Check supervisor.log to make sure you are connected to the tunnel

Please note this Docker image does not include the required OpenVPN configuration file and certificates. These will typically be downloaded from your VPN providers website (look for OpenVPN configuration files), and generally are zipped.
PIA users - The URL to download the OpenVPN configuration files and certs is:-
Once you have downloaded the zip (normally a zip as they contain multiple ovpn files) then extract it to /config/openvpn/ folder (if that folder doesn't exist then start and stop the docker container to force the creation of the folder).
If there are multiple ovpn files then please delete the ones you don't want to use (normally filename follows location of the endpoint) leaving just a single ovpn file and the certificates referenced in the ovpn file (certificates will normally have a crt and/or pem extension).
User ID (PUID) and Group ID (PGID) can be found by issuing the following command for the user you want to run the container as:-
The ADDITIONAL_PORTS environment variable is used to define ports that might be required for scripts run inside the container, if you want to define multiple ports then please use a comma to separate values.
