Why are there RDP connection issues on satellite internet



RDP (and VPN) connections may not work on many satellite internet connections due to:
lack of bandwidth
low connection quality
intentional blocking by provider of VPN or RDP traffic.

For your reference, here is a webpage on the ViaSat satellite internet site discussing RDP connectivity issues.

If possible, we recommend you use a cellular hotspot instead. You can then connect your local computer to that cellular hotspot. A cellular hotspot can be a MIFI device or your cell phone may have cellular hotspot capabilities. Below is a picture of a USB MIFI device. Here is a link to a Verizon USB MIFI device in case it is helpful.​
