Most of WAN related logs refer to hacker attacks (most
often port scans) that the firewall is blocking.
If you want to provide access to a server or program on
your computer, you need to open the ports that the program
uses. This is done on the router, under Security/Port
Forwarding. The actual type of forwarding and ports,
depends on the program and what you are trying to do.
