This guide will introduce how to set set the static IP Address on the Antminer S19 ASICs and how to batch configure static IP to better manage your Antminer S19s.
Applicable to all Antminer models, both Microsoft and Apple systems can be operated.
First, let me introduce the difference between DHCP and Static mode:
DHCP: Commonly known as “Dynamic IP,” the IP address is automatically obtained, but the IP of the miner will change, which makes it challenging to locate the problematic machine
Static: commonly known as “static IP,” manually set the IP address, the IP of the miner will not change, and it is easy to locate the problematic machine
It is generally recommended to use a static IP, which can locate the miner easily and quickly.

Set the Static IP Address on the Antminer S19 ASICs
Follow the steps to get your static IP address set:
1. After logging in to your miner’s User Interface, click the “Network” tab and choose “Static” from the “Protocol” drop-down list.
2. Then key in your IP address, subnet mask, SWG, and DNS.
3. Click “Save&Apply”, and there you have it!
*NOTE: You may skip this step if you have less than 3 miners (You may skip at your own discretion, static IP is not required for less than 3 miners)
After your network settings are configured properly, continue to set up your mining pools and start mining.
How to Batch Configure Static IP
After the miner is connected to the network and powered on, the IP obtained during the miner configuration is in DHCP mode, and the IP address is not fixed. If you own many miners, this tool can set the static IP address in batches for you to better manage these miners.
We recommend using the APMinerTool to batch configuring miners’ IP.
- Software download link:
- Important: APMinerTool software may be deleted by some antivirus software (Velvet) by mistake after downloading and unpacking, you need to add trust in the antivirus software. After unpacking the file, double-click APMinerTool.exe in the folder to open it.
There are two situations:
- Scenario: 120 machines on the shelf
- Requirement: set fixed IPs in the order of mining machine placement
Ⅰ. The mining machine automatically obtains the IP address and the need to set the IP address conflict: such as the mining machine automatically obtains the range of 1-120 and set the fixed IP needs to 1-120 range (fixed 1-120 is to facilitate subsequent operations and maintenance), the software will show occupancy. To solve this problem, perform the following steps.
1. Open the APMinerTool 1.0.10software and click on the “Set Fixed IP” option at the top left of the software.
2. Click the “+” on the left side of the software, fill in the bulk fill range of 121-250 above the “+” , subnet mask, gateway and DNS accordingly.
3. Click the “+” on the left side of the software continuously to add the IP segment 1-120 that the miner has automatically obtained, click 120 times. (If necessary, the added IP can be modified by double-clicking)
4. Click “Bulk Fill” at the top right of the software after adding.
5. Click “Configure Miner” at the top right of the software to fix the miner IP to between 121-250. (The purpose of the above operation is to prevent the IP from being occupied by the staggered settings of 1-120)
6. After fixing the mining machine IP to 121-250 in batch, click on the left side of the software – No. to delete all the IPs on the original page.
7. Click “Start Monitoring” at the top right of the software.
8. Press the IP key from the first mining machine on the shelf, then the software will pop up “The currently detected IP is XXX, is it added to the setup queue” Click “OK” to add the machine to the setup queue.
9. Press the miner IP key in the order of placement, and each one needs to wait for the pop-up “Whether to join the setting queue”, and click “OK” before pressing the next miner, to avoid some miners skipping and not joining the setup queue.
10. Fill in the Bulk Fill Range option with 1-120, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS accordingly.
11. Click “Bulk Fill” at the top right of the software.
12. Click “Configure Mine” at the top right of the software to fix the miner’s IP to 1-120 in order.
Ⅱ. No conflict between the IP address automatically obtained by the miner and the IP address to be set: If the DHCP range 121-250 has been set in the router, it will not be occupied when setting 1-120, so you can start the operation directly from steps 7-12.
