Costs of transmission through a satellite phone are very high. If working from a remote location, firstly, how do you configure your dial up to link through the satellite phone to your usual connection, and secondly, is advice on the best compression software to minimise transmit times.

I don't want to sound pessimistic, but I am not sure that many of us here have done a lot with satellite phones.

Are you somewhere in the middle of nowhere? I mean, transmission costs for data on CDMA and GPRS aren't exactly cheap, and are not what you would call fast (not yet).
