1. Introduction

1.1 Introduction

This document wants to explain something about Satellite technology, how it works, what do you need, configuration and how to sharing it between several clients. Satellite connections are very different from terrestrial ones, they require more attention to setup and also some more care to maintain them stable (snow or strong rain could prevent you to have a good signal).

Feedback are welcome, don't hesitate to contact us: and
