Run the app as 'standalone' and then make your configuration preferences adding your news-server details.

Then run NNTP-Grab Server application and choose 'start scheduler', then go back to back to the NNTP-Grab application and click on 'connect'

That's it! Smile

NNTPGrab 0.7.2 has just been released 28 May 2012 .

*NB - The 'full package' contains all the files needed - the other pets are for people who wish to have smaller packages installed or no alternate language support.

This is a bugfix release and contains the following changes:

    Allow the user to kill the NNTPGrab Server using the Qt frontend
    Allow frontends to shutdown the Qt-based NNTPGrab Server
    The move to top/up/down/bottom buttons in the download queue context menu in the Qt frontend were broken. Fixed. Bug #90
    Translated the Linux desktop files
    Make sure all messages are translated in the Qt frontend on Mac OS X
    Saving the download queue on win32 and win64 could result in a 'Permission denied' error. Fixed. Resolves the issue mentioned at http://nntpgrab.nl/boards/2/topics/369
    When importing a collection using the Qt frontend from the Online Search the collection name would get stripped unnecessary. Resolves the issue mentioned at http://nntpgrab.nl/boards/1/topics/446
    The automatic shutdown button wasn't visible in the Gtk frontend any more as of version 0.7.0. Fixed. Resolves the issue mentioned at http://nntpgrab.nl/boards/1/topics/371
    Connecting to a NNTPGrab Server in the Gtk3 frontend could result in an assertion failure. Fixed. Resolves the issue mentioned at http://nntpgrab.nl/boards/1/topics/434
    Fixed a small rendering issue in the Gtk3 frontend when using Gtk 3.4.0 or higher
    Fixed a crash in the Qt frontend which could occur when a plugin event was triggered without any parameters
    Automatic PAR2 repair and automatic unpack wasn't working in the Gtk frontend on Mac OS X. Fixed
    Fixed a possible crash in the NetworkManager plugin
    Fix compile failure in the Qt frontend when Subversion 1.7 is installed
