In this case, WAN-IP is the Name of the Gateway that the GP Client was trying to connect to.
There can be problems when there is a proxy on the local (GP Client) network.
If others were having the same issue at the same time, that would indicate the Gateway was unreachable (maybe ISP down, a bad security policy dropping TCP 443/UDP 4501 connections to the Gateway, etc.)
