Request a Global Static IP Address for Your mini-VSAT Broadband Account
With a Global Static IP address assigned to a computer system or router onboard your vessel, parties on shore will be able to access that computer or router directly over the Internet. The service operates by assigning unique private IP addressing to a secure computer or router on the vessel, that is then mapped to a globally unique public IP address at the Internet egress point you choose.

How Global Static IPs Work
The KVH mini-VSAT Broadband network secures each customer's global public Internet addresses by blocking any undefined inbound applications, ports, or source addresses. This block allows the KVH mini-VSAT Broadband network to provide our customers with the best and most supportable network access and removes the security threat and excessive traffic use seen on the public Internet today resulting from unwanted network traffic, scans and attacks.
The KVH network can allow inbound applications or ports, (i.e. Microsoft Remote Desktop, VNC, SSH, http/https, IPsec and many more) into your global public Internet address from specific source public Internet addresses that you provide.
Note that all applications from the vessel to the Internet will operate normally according to the terms of your service plan.
