Is there a way to change the IP addresses in the .members hidden file in /etc/pve directory?

We have a two node quorate cluster running over WAN, with each node behind a NAT, and we are looking to change the .members hidden file in order to change the IPs for each node to their respective public IP.

Currently, when trying to replicate a ZFS pool, the set up fails as its looking to connect to the LAN IPs rather than the public IPs. We suspect that the replication function is pulling the IPs from the .members file, as the corosync file already has the public IPs.

The .members file gets its information from the system (when pve-cluster is started during boot) - check that there is a correct entry in '/etc/hosts'
