I'm not sure I've the picture completely clear (an ASCII scheme would help); however, in my past experiences with satellite-based connections, you have to make sure to disable the rp_filter on the satellite interface: echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/`your sat interface`/rp_filter To see if this is necessary, try to: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/`your sat interface`/log_martians and check your logs (on stock debian systems "martian" packets should be logged in auth.log, I think). If you see and martian packets being blocked, I suggest you try to disable rp_filter on the sat interface. By the way, what's your satellite provider?
