No More Public IP Fees: Use a Raspberry Pi to Access Starlink Devices for Less

May 22, 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of internet connectivity, Starlink has emerged as a game-changer, particularly for users in remote and underserved areas. However, one of the challenges with Starlink, like many modern ISPs, is the lack of a public IP address, which is crucial for direct device access over the internet. Obtaining a public IP from Starlink typically incurs additional monthly fees—a hurdle for many. A Raspberry Pi, configured as a Remote.It Jumpbox, becomes a highly effective and economical solution.

What is a Jumpbox?

A Jumpbox is a secure stepping stone that one can use to connect to other devices in a network. By setting up a Raspberry Pi as a Jumpbox, you effectively create a secure gateway through which devices on the same network can be accessed remotely without exposing each device to the internet.

Why Use a Raspberry Pi as a Jumpbox on Starlink Networks?

  1. Cost-Effectiveness: Instead of paying for a public IP address, using a Raspberry Pi as a Jumpbox utilizes Remote.It’s technology that facilitates connections to devices behind the network. Users benefit from not paying additional monthly fees for a public IP.
  2. Enhanced Security: The Jumpbox serves as a controlled access point, meaning only authenticated users can access the network behind it, minimizing the risks of exposing devices directly to the internet.
  3. Ease of Use: Setting up a Raspberry Pi as a Remote.It Jumpbox is straightforward. Once configured, accessing connected devices from anywhere becomes as simple as logging into the Remote.It platform, which can significantly simplify the management of remote devices.
  4. Versatility: Beyond providing remote access, a Raspberry Pi can run various applications and services, making it a multipurpose device on your network.
