A Seattle resident found himself stuck in Europe because of COVID-19 positive tests. He had a laptop with him and Internet available at his isolation location. Even though stuck in Europe, he could work remotely, but his workplace was blocking access to its network from European IP#s. He had the same blocking problem trying to pay his health insurance.


To solve this problem a WireGuard VPN server was set up at a Seattle residence, which allowed him to connect from Europe via VPN and obtain a residential, US-based IP#. He was then able to do everything he needed to do over the Internet.
