Winlogbeat unable to connect to elasticsearch


I downloaded and installed SOF-ELK, imported it into VMware, powered it up then installed the winlogbeat on my Windows 10 laptop. I changed the following in the winlogbeat.yml file:

Under the "Kibana" section I edited:
host: ""

Under the "Elasticsearch output" I edited:
  # Array of hosts to connect to.
  hosts: [""]

however I am getting this error in winlogbeat:

ERROR [publisher_pipeline_output] pipeline/output.go:154 Failed to connect to backoff(elasticsearch( Get "": dial tcp connectex: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

Is there anything I have to change on the server side to bind ip address?
