If you don't know what Port Forwarding is yet, you might want to start by reading our What is Port Forwarding guide.
You might also be interested in our huge collection of Router Screenshots where you can see every page of every router that we know of.
Now we need to know your routers IP address. You can find it a variety of ways.
It's ok if you don't know your BT BTHomeHub router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:
Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser.
In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your BT BTHomeHub router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.254.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.
Click the Ok button to log in to your BT BTHomeHub router.
Please visit our Default BT Router Passwords page if the username and password shown below did not work for you.
If you can't login to your router because you forgot your BT BTHomeHub router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your BT BTHomeHub router back to its factory settings.
If you are having trouble with this guide, then perhaps PFConfig may be your solution. PFConfig is a software tool that will automatically forward ports for your router to save you time and hassle.
Most ISPs block the default port that Azureus uses. So it is a good idea to change Azureus' port number to something other than the default port. Here's a brief walkthrough on how to do that.
In Azureus click Tools in the menu at the top of your screen. Then click the Options link in the menu that drops down.
In the menu tree on the left hand side of this window Connection should be selected. Pick a random port between 49152 and 65535. Then enter that port into the Incomming TCP/UDP Listen Port box. When you are done, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the configuation screen.
Please enter the port you chose for Azureus below.
Now that you are logged in to your BT BTHomeHub router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced link near the left of the page.
Click the Continue to Advanced link near the center of the page.
The menu on the left should change. In this new menu, click Application Sharing.
Click the click here link near the center of the page.
Enter the name of the program into the Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Put a dot into the Manual Entry of Port Maps radio button.
Click the Next button.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Azureus requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Game or Application Definition menu and then click Apply.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Game or Application Definition page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Apply.
Click the Apply button near the top of the page.
Use the Device box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.
Select the application you created using the Game or Application drop down box. Then click Add to enable it.
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Azureus on the BT BTHomeHub you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
