    Hello Charl,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us to implement per user location screening. There are some challenges to implementing this as it will require that we allow authentication to begin before a connection can be blocked by location screening. Some users will not like this, so we have to find a way to block connections as efficiently as possible.

    There are a couple of options available for by-passing location screening on a per user basis. You can enable options for ActiveSync so that known devices by-pass location screening checks. You can also have the IP address of knwon ActiveSync devices whitelisted, so if you have a laptop on the same wifi network that is not using ActiveSync it will be allowed to connect as well. If you are using Webmail, you can use Two Factor Authentication to bypass Location Screening.

    We will look into per user location…

    I just had a go at whitelisting PipeDrive.com, and it looks like PipeDrive breaks out through Amazon.com, so there are literally hundreds if not thousands of IP addresses which I will have to whitelist.

    So I don't think that this will work either.

    Thanks Arron,

    I will try the Whitelisting of PipeDrive IPs for that purpose, but this will not work for my normal users.
    The reason for this is:
    1. We do not use Active Sync.
    2. We do not allow our users to connect using WorldClient.
    3. Our roaming users all travel with their notebooks, and collect mail using IMAP.

    It would therefore not make sense to work with the Whitelisting of IPs for this purpose.
