how to stop NL auto connecting?

Post by tommo123 » Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:33 pm

i open the program and it auto connects even though this is not checked in the connection settings. i disconnect and within 20 seconds it connects again.

i have to pause the thing to get it to stop downloading while i'm doing something else.

this is really annoying at times

Are you importing NZB files? There is a setting in the NZB section to connect to the server upon importing a NZB.

No. That's what's weird. All I'm doing is starting the program and within a few seconds it auto connects and starts downloading headers. The leech function is there too actually now that I think of it

Wonder if that's it?

Oh, it is downloading headers? That is the Auto Update feature. In the Manager tab, in the top right corner above the group list is the Auto Update menu. Click it and set it to never auto update.
