Background: I work a remote employee in the US for a US based company. I log into our company's intranet via VPN to work every day. I also connect to multiple client networks via VPN (as well as using TeamViewer, LogMeIn, RPD, etc).
Plan: I want to work from northern Italy (Bergamo area) for 2-3 months while visiting family. This is a well established commercially developed area with fast, reliable internet access.
Concern: My company has expressed concern about me being able connect to networks, use my VOIP phone, access client servers, or even our own VPN from that location.
Question: Is this a valid concern? Is it possible that certain services or VPN's would block incoming traffic from Italy? I'm almost 100% sure that Italy would not block outgoing traffic (other countries). Is there any way to test this? I'm not even sure where to start.
