Portal WMS server name redirection at times.

While using geoportal I notice that sometimes the server of a WMS is changed to localhost from the actual server name (given in the data source) while sending GetMap requests. This is also the case with the GetFeatureInfo on the WMS service. Is there a place we configure this in the web config to swap it? For example, here below screenshot, you see that the demis is connected in the Data Sources however when I try to display,  nothing displays in the Map because the GETMAP request sent was to the localhost instead of www2.demis.nl. Same is the case for GetFeatureInfo at times it changes to localhost and fails on a WMS layter. Is there something in the config file to swap these requests.

Re: Portal WMS server name redirection at times.

The reason for this is becuase the GETMAP url in the capabilities document was pointing to  localhost and hence this redirection. Portal is working fine n picking the correct getMap request url. Just that the service for some reason has changed the url to localhost. And hence this problem.
