    4549 is the default IP for many routers and other devices, you should pick some other IP in that range.

    And in vmware you must set networking to be bridged if you want your vm to be reachable from other computers on your LAN. If VMWare works like other virtual machine hosts, the guest network will be on an isolated subnet with NAT access to the outside.
