Assign multiple Static IP addresses on your BT Business Hub 3


Find out which BT Business Hub you've got.


If you have a single static IP there's no need to configure your hub, as the address is obtained automatically from the connection.


To use multiple Static IP addresses, you must have signed up for them when you ordered your BT Business Broadband service or subscribed to them through My BT Business account.


Static IPv6 doesn't work on BT Business Hub 3 or earlier versions.


To assign multiple Static IP addresses on your BT Business Hub 3:


  • Open your web browser and go to //btbusinesshub.home to open the Hub Manager.
  • From the homepage, select Configure, next to Static IP.
  • When prompted, enter the admin password and click OK. First time users will be asked to set a new password.
  • Tick On next to Static IP address:

    Once the Static IP address is applied to your device, you'll need to reboot it so that it picks up the new IP address from your hub.

    If your device isn't set to obtain an IP address automatically then the hub can't apply an IP using this method. In this case you should specify an IP address from the usable range, on your device. Use the Router address and subnet mask supplied with your IP range.


    The BT Business Hub firewall will block all unsolicited external access requests. If you wish to access your device externally from the internet then you'll need to open the relevant ports in the firewall. To do this, simply:

    1. Select the required game or application in the Select game or application dropdown box.
    2. Press Add and the application will be added to the list of allowed applications.

    Although this is described as Port Forwarding, for your public Static IP addresses, it is actually a firewall 'pin hole' as each Static IP has its own complete port stack.
