Why not use windows file sharing to transfer files, saves you having to
setup an FTP server.
As to what address the host (Kubuntu) has, that depends on how you have
setup VMware networking.
If you have it set to be a NAT network then the kubuntu host will use
the address for vmnet1 (ifconfig vmnet1),
if you have setup a host-only network then the address will be assigned
to vmnet8
and for bridged networking then you need to look at the adapter you set
VMware to bridge to.
