I have installed Bitnami canvas LMS following the steps in the Url
https://bitnami.com/stack/canvaslms/virtual-machine. The installed LMS is working fine when I am in my local computer and I am accessing the portal with the Url "http://192.168.1.141". I have tried to download a file in this instance using the Url "http://192.168.2.141/files/2/download?download_frd=1" and the file is downloaded successfully. I have to expose this instance to the public and for that, I have done port forwarding in my router to this computer. After port forwarding, I can open the Canvas instance using my public IP address. But at this time I have a problem and the problem is that when I click on a file, I am unable to download the file. It's because when I click on the public IP address, the URL is converted to my local IP address and the file never gets downloaded. My public Url of the file to download is "http://Public IP:1000/files/2/download?download_frd=1" but the Url changed to local IP in the browser as "http://192.168.2.141/files/2/download?download_frd=1&....." What could be the reason?
