Ping Starlink IP from routed private network


Recommended Posts

Configuring Starlink as a failover connection from my enterprise private network (10.0.0.0/8) to Internet. I'm not in bypass so I have a 192.168.1.x address via DHCP from Starlink. I can ping starlink (192.168.1.1) from my DHCP address (my router) but I cannot ping starlink from anything outside of the 192.168.1.0/24) network. I'm thinking Starlink doesn't know how to reach my 10.0.0.0/8 network and is therfore sending that response traffic to the default gateway, the Internet.

1) is this correct? Starlink can't reach a private network other than 192.168.1.0/24?

2) Is there any way to add static routes to Starlink so I can tell it that the next hop for 10.0.0.0/8 is the DHCP address Starlink handed my router?

Update: I'm now confident that #1 is true. I NAT'd my traffic to souce from 192.168.1.99 and it immediately started working. But I'd still like to know if #2 is possible. Then I would't need NAT.
