I was just rereading your question again + realize you asked how to connect ssh to a Windows VM.

My guess is you can't very easily, rather you'll follow Andrew Hancock's comment about connecting using an RDP client.

Now then, if you're trying to connect from a headless (no screen) Linux server to a Windows VM, then you'll have to arrange for sshd to be listening on the Windows VM.

There are various guides. Many seem flawed.

https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_windows_openssh_server seems like a guide which might potentially be correct.

So you do not require SSH.

Use the RDP client on linux.

And before even trying you need to ensure that the correct ports are open for RDP/SSH, they are not open my default anymore
