Unfortunately, I am not able to configure the Microsoft USB to ethernet adapter.

Output from ifconfig -a:

Output from lsusb:

wide@wideServer:~$ lsusb

What can I do to get the adapter up and running?

Edit: Tried to run the following:

sudo ifconfig enxc0335eee724f up

And ifconfig -a now states:

The machine is running Ubuntu Server 18.04.4 LTS.
