IP address usually refers to your public IP address; the one that is
available on your network.  In your case, your IP is, and
your subnet mask is

You will want to read the PostgreSQL manual that I linked to earlier.
Also, if you are running the server to be access via a network link,
then you can worry about setting up this file; if you are going to be
using it with the application on the same machine, the default
configuration should suffice.
