Whenever I add a WMS layer, from a server on the local intranet, the WMS request gets sent to localhost instead of the actual server I am referencing.
I am enclosing screenshots to make sure my problem is clear.
Clearly, something seems off. If I just copy the request from the log window and replace the
localhost with my server IP into Firefox, then the request goes through fine and I see the map in Firefox.
This seems to be happening only in Windows QGIS builds. On Linux, the map shows up as expected.
I am posting here to check if I am doing something wrong. I can't seem to find a QGIS bug that describes this issue so I want to rule out that I am getting something wrong.
