A question was asked in the Flex radio group if anyone was running Flex remote via a Starlink connection.

This response re use of Starlink for ZOOM may be very pertinent.  Gary, have you had any ZOOM clients using Starlink?

I Zoom with a couple hams once a month, and the one on Starlink has video and audio freeze with some regularity.  I would assume that would impact remote operation.

I use a pair of Pep Link routers to build a Software-defined WAN.
You need to have the ability to bridge the level two packets, which PepLink can do,
Also, one of the two routers must be on a public accessible IP address:
Flex performance was good, not great, but it did work.  Your results may vary.

The problem is STARLINK uses carrier grade NAT and you need to run some kind of VPN. 
The disadvantage of running VPN instead of SmartLink is you lose the optimization to reduce data usage. WAN connections sends uncompressed audio packets where over SmartLink they use a different audio algorithm. While the VPN solution may work it will require more uplink bandwidth at radio end.
