I knew that I am definitely trying to connect to some other Ubuntu machine in my corporate network. All I need to figure out was the IP Address of my VM and connect using IP Address instead of the name. I took help from in-house expert Pradeep (b | t) and he showed me the magical command.

In Windows, we are used to use IPCONFIG to know the IP address of a Windows machine. In the same way, IFCONFIG is the command in Linux. Since I was able to connect using Hyper-V console, I ran the magical command.
