To do this, launch a normal Windows command prompt and enter the command ” ssh user@*vm_ip*”. 

Where “user” is the username that was specified while creating the virtual machine and “*vm_ip*” is the VM IP address.

In the opened console it is necessary to enter a password that was specified while creating the virtual machine.
