Could you please define WAN connections?
WAN is an acronym for "Wide Area Network." It's a computer network that spans a relatively large geographical area, typically connecting several local-area networks (LANs). Computers connected to a WAN usually do so through a public network such the Internet or through dedicated leased-lines from the telephone company or an Internet Service Provider.
