Usenet is probably the best source for your daily downloading needs, but a big problem is finding the right servers, that is, if you don’t want to pay for it. The reality is that there aren’t free usenet binary servers, simply because it would cost too much to maintain them. However, with the sudden need to make the IPv6 system more popular, there are a few free binary servers open for public, but you’ll need to enable IPv6 on your computer to use them. In this guide I will give the easiest setup how to do this using SABnzbd+. If it’s not working for you, I also have a few IPv4 binary servers for you, maybe they’ll work.
