If it's a VM, what product are you using? With many products you must make sure you are using the network in "bridge" or "NAT" mode, not "host-only" mode. Also, most of them require you to install something like "VMWare Tools", or "VirtualBox Add-ons", or "Integration features" inside your VM to get full functionality and speed.

The output that I've requested should not generate more than a few lines code. You might as well get some screen capture and attach here too.

You can try to start ssh service while connected through your VM consele.
