Anyone figure out how to get remote TabloTV access through the CGNat that Starlink uses?
You’d have to use a VPN with the VPN server on your home LAN.
Thanks. Doing more research, I found this on Reddit: Reddit - Dive into anything
Essentially her Unifi router is the VPN server. Unfortunately, I don’t think my TP-Link Omada can do that.
You can run the VPN server on something else inside the LAN, like a NAS box or a raspberryPi, or any computer that’s on 24x7.
I assume the same thing is true for cell data as that’s how our data is provided. Starlink JUST came to Iowa and may consider it, but not if it’s going to have the same problems we have with the cell data situation. If I run VPN server on my big desktop PC that runs 24/7/365.5 I can access remotely?
Likely not well with the bandwidth issues where we live.
A bit more info here and a report on success.
Yes, creating a tunnel with some type of VPN is the solution. I found a Youtube video where someone was using TMHI with some software called localxpose (it uses a .io TLD). I feel that would work but it seemed like I had to ‘expose’ more about my network than I wanted to. This started more research.
I have landed upon Tailscale (tailscale.com) to use. This software is multi-platform, easy to set up, and is based on Wireguard. I have a Windows machine on my network (same as the Tablo), I installed Tailscale on it and created it as an ‘exit node’. This means any device connecting to my Tailscale network will connect through the tunnel and appear to be exiting from the Windows system. When connected this way, my external IP address shows to be a Starlink IP.
My main reason for this is that we will be traveling in our RV during the summer and I want to get to the Tablo behind Starlink. The multiplatform ability even allows me to run Tailscale on one of my gl-inet routers. Then I can make all my RV devices tunnel back home with this software.
Very pleased about it, but not so pleased to have to jump through the hoops.
Tailscale is a solid choice.
Spoke a bit too soon. Still fighting a few things.
Does anyone know what the Tablo app scans for when it is looking for the devices? Scans the local network for what ports, etc?
