The Hidden Secret – Unlocking Port Forwarding on Starlink

2023-05-18 @ 17:00 18:00 UTC

Starlink has given remote areas of the planet fast, reliable internet – allowing businesses to bring cameras, routers, remote desktops, building control systems, and even industrial networks online for increased efficiency. The issues arise when trying to remotely access these systems.

Join us live on May 18, 2023 at 1:00PM ET and learn how our customers are accessing commercial systems via the Starlink network seamlessly with our clientless Zero Trust Architecture. We’ll demonstrate the current challenges of port forwarding on Starlink networks, real world use cases, and how Agilicus AnyX bypasses these limitations while providing security enhancements.

Challenges with Starlink and Port Forwarding

Starlink uses a Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT). CGNAT runs on IPv4, which pools IP addresses for economies of scale – removing the ability to port forward to specific systems within a user’s network. Even with IPv6, allowing inbound services remains a challenge.

While current workarounds like a reverse VPN do exist, they are complicated, expensive, and introduce security risks already present with basic firewall port-forwarding techniques. Over-privileged access, shared usernames and passwords, and a lack of proper auditing capabilities could leave your business exposed with the current methods of accessing systems behind a Starlink network. Agilicus AnyX directly connects users to only the systems they need in order to perform their job without the need for new user accounts. We make remote access to systems on a Starlink network simpler, cheaper, and more secure.
