[Resolved] Why does my website return a private address?
I have just finished a successful WordPress installation on a local ubuntu server vm. In the general settings area I have this: http://10.0.101.101:5580 I have also modified Apache2 ports.conf and the sites-available default file so the website works on port 5580. I also have a firewall configured with a one to one translation so the outside address public address A.B.C.D:5580 gets translated to 10.0.101.101:5580
When I put A.B.C.D:5580 into a browser the WordPress site main page does come up, so I know the translation is working, but when I try to navigate off the main page it does not work and the browser ends up showing a “could not connect” with for example this in the browser address bar: http://10.0.101.101:5580/?p=13#comments
This is different behavior than local browsing, where everything works.
Why is the web site returning the private address?
Anyone know what kind of changes I need to make to get navigation off the main page working from outside the local network?
