IP CONNECTION TO VMWARE

Hi. This is my situation:

- running Windows 10

- I start VMWare (Linux guest system) which starts Teradata as part of its startup

I am connecting to Teradata via a call-level interface using an IP - 192.168.74.128  (no issues, connect OK).

I'd like to setup an entry in my Windows hosts file pointing to that IP. However when I did some brief
IP checking using - ipconfig /all   I don't see this IP.
Below is a subset of the output I see. I don't have a lot of background in networking
experience re: the IPv4 address and DHCP server address . Based upon the entries below I'm guessing
I'm making the connection using Ethernet 2.

Since I didn't setup the IP to make the connection to Teradata, my question is -  how am I connecting OK using 192.168.74.128  ?
Would it be better to use - 192.168.74.254 ?

Thanks
