[Archivesspace_Users_Group] View Published option is being redirected to localhost instead of our IP address

You need to change AppConfig[:public_proxy_url] in config.rb from default localhost to actual hostname:

AppConfig[:frontend_url] = "http://localhost:8080"
AppConfig[:frontend_proxy_url] = proc { AppConfig[:frontend_url] }
AppConfig[:public_proxy_url] = proc { AppConfig[:public_url] }
AppConfig[:public_url] = "http://localhost:8081"

Not sure if there is a link back in the other direction ( public -> frontend ) but if there is you should also set :frontend_proxy_url

We usually have frontend proxied thru Apache, so I used this as my default configs, so it works whether I’m on test or production servers, but this wouldn’t work if VHOST names for proxies were different from hostname:

AppConfig[:hostname] = proc { Socket.gethostname }

AppConfig[:frontend_proxy_url] = proc { "http://#{AppConfig[:hostname]}<http://#{appconfig[:hostname]}>" }
AppConfig[:public_proxy_url] = proc { "http://#{AppConfig[:hostname]}:8081<http://#{appconfig[:hostname]}:8081>" }

The view published option does not take us to the public side.  In the url it directs us to localhost.  We have to manually put our IP address where the localhost was and then we can see what the public sees. Is there anyway to fix this?  Thank you
