Having described how to install Qouch app on iOS devices, I will now explain how to configure Qouch app to manage SABnzbd, CouchPotato, and Sick Beard. Qouch is probably the best iOS app currently available to remotely control SABnzbd downloads, CouchPotato movies, and Sick Beard TV shows. Unfortunately, it has been removed from iTunes, making it difficult to install. But trust me, if you go through the pain of installing it, you will truly enjoy controlling your media center downloads from your iPad or iPhone. After you have installed Qouch, follow this guide to configure Qouch to remotely control your SABnzbd, CouchPotato, or Sick Beard.
Qouch interface, shown below, is very intuitive and allows you to manage one or more of the following software running on a remote server: SABnzbd, CouchPotato, or Sick Beard.
Add a Server
The first thing you will have to do is add the connection details of the remote server that runs SABnzbd, CouchPotato, and Sick Beard. Click on “Servers” and then “Add new server”.
Provide a friendly name for the server and the IP address or the domain name. If you would like to access through the internet then provide the external IP address (WAN IP) or a domain name. Also, ensure that port forwarding is enabled on your router to direct SABnzbd, CouchPotato, or Sick Beard packets to the correct system.
Next, configure Qouch to connect to SABnzbd, CouchPotato, and Sick Beard.
