Trusted Host Patterns Settings Not working with IP

So I am trying to get this drupal(drupal845.localhost) site accessible by my VM. But the Trusted Host Settings are not working.

Here are the settings in my settings.php

$settings['trusted_host_patterns'] = array(    '^drupal845.localhost$'    '^.+.drupal845.localhost$'    '^192.*.*.*.drupal845.localhost$', ); 

Not working

I have another drupal(drupal.localhost) site on the same machine and the trusted host patterns work. This is what I have in my settings.php for trusted host patterns:

$settings['trusted_host_patterns'] = array(    '^drupal.localhost$'    '^.+.drupal.localhost$'    '^192.*.*.*.drupal.localhost$', ); 


Why does it work on the drupal.localhost but not on drupal845.localhost

Also to note is I have .localhost masked to I have to specify the port because windows is using 80 so my WSL(Ubuntu) Apache server I set to use 8080. They both work without the ip specification as well.
