Hi Caroline, we are like you, having geoblocked anything from outside of 
Australia unless organised ahead of time.  We also require MFA for all 
connections initiated outside of our known “safe” network.

Subject: lg-it Geo-blocking - VPN and access to emails when overseas

Hi everyone,

I am wondering how others are handling geo-blocking with Australians now able 
to travel overseas.

Geo-blocking on the firewall prevents staff when overseas from connecting to 
our VPN.  It also prevents them from logging into the Council Webmail.  They 
are also unable to receive emails on their mobile devices.  We have been 
manually “opening” the individual countries when staff inform us they are going 
overseas or when they contact us when they are overseas and say they cannot VPN 
or receive emails.

Feel free to respond offline.  Thanks

Regards
Caroline
