W10 Developer mode installs and enables minimal MS SSH server for Settings
"Device discovery" mDNS service "SSDP Discovery", also "SSH Server Broker", and
"SSH Server Proxy" services.
Enable/disable them to affect MS W10 SSH server.
In Developer mode you may also have optional Features you can add for OpenSSH
Server and OpenSSH Client.

W10 SSH can connect to WSL bash: web search for "W10 SSH WSL bash".
