Spanish term or phrase: levantar la conexión WAN
General context: learning to set up a WAN. Specific context: "...cualquier equipo que quiera acceder a otro de su mismo dominio tendría que hacer una petición de resolución de nombre al servidor que manejara zu zona, de manera que se retrasará en parte la resolución de la IP del equipo (y por tanto el tiempo de acceso al mismo), y además sería necesario levantar la conexión WAN que enlaza la localización del equipo de origen con el dominio xxx.YYY.es."

Proposed translation: raise the WAN connection. (This is a stab in the dark. What's really going on with the WAN connection here?)

to bring a WAN connection up
Explanation:
Just to start from the beginning a WAn is:

"A computer network that spans a relatively large geographical area. Typically, a WAN consists of two or more local-area networks (LANs).

Computers connected to a wide-area network are often connected through public networks, such as the telephone system. They can also be connected through leased lines or satellites. The largest WAN in existence is the Internet"

(http://webopedia.internet.com/TERM/w/wide_area_network_WAN.h...

Could it be that the Spanish writers took the English "to bring a connecxtion up" (as opposite to when a connection "goes down", i.e., sufre una caída, "se cae") too literally? For example, as in

"This will become the WAN interface once the connection to the PPP server is up..."
(www.linux.no/biblioteket/HOWTO/tekst/DSL-HOWTO )

"WAN interfaces which are configured to provide "dial-on-demand" service will bring a connection up (i.e. dial the other end) when there are network packets which must be transferred over the link"

(www.ieng.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/aggr/vpn5000/5000mg... mgrref/approutg.htm )

"the bridging connection should enable a local client to bring up the WAN
connection by querying (broadcasting) for a NetWare server on a remote network..."
(www.life.uiuc.edu/manuals/pipeline/pipe130/6.0.0/usergde/ bridge.htm )

"Because of this, WAN links are often configured to bring up the connection
only when there is traffic destined for the remote network"
(www.byte.com/art/9412/sec13/art4.htm )

HOPE IT HELPS!

I know what a WAN is. I just didn't know how to handle "levantar", which is computer jargon. Know I know.
Thanks for your explanations, references and quick response.
