Download from Usenet to WebDAV

Started in 1996, Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning, known as WebDAV in short – is a useful medium to share and upload files.

At OffCloud, we support a host of third-party remote storages, and one of them is WebDAV support. Running a WebDAV server and looking to transfer files from newsgroups / Usenet? This tutorial walks you through the steps to do so, using OffCloud’s remote downloading client.

Login to your Offcloud account and navigate to Account tab on the menu. Click on Remote accounts on the Account page to access your third party storage accounts. (1)

Click on Add new remote account (2)

In the Account type drop-down, select WebDAV and fill up your details, such as host, username, and password. (3)

Once you have added your server to Offcloud, it is time now to add a link to the remote client.

On the menu, click on Remote and upload your .nzb file by clicking on the text and selecting your file. Ensure you have chosen your WebDAV server from the drop-down before uploading the file. (4)

And that’s it. Your download will now start processing and the files from the newsgroup / Usenet will be transferred to your WebDAV enabled server. Once successfully downloaded, check your server for the downloaded files (5)
