Putty doesn't care about the kind of ip address. It only needs to know what
the address is. 

If you open the VM's console, use the command ' ifconfig ' to see what the
address is. If the address is different from your computer's ip address,
then you need to change the Hyper-V settings so that the VM gets its address
from the same DHCP service as you use. 

You can also set the address if you edit /etc/network/interfaces, but only
if the VM uses the same network you do. In other words, if Hyper-V is using
a virtual, private network, then changing the address won't make it work.
