Editing an existing WAN connection

If your local network configuration has changed or if you need to update the remote subnet, you can change the settings for a WAN.


  • You must be an account administrator to edit a WAN.
  • If you plan you edit the WAN remote subnet, first shut down or suspend all of the environments that are connected to the WAN. They'll use the new remote subnet settings when they're restarted.
  • If you change any routing settings for a Skytap on Azure ExpressRoute connection, you generally need to disconnect and reconnect the ExpressRoute circuit in both Skytap and Microsoft Azure.
