The new WinSSH communicator introduced in this release is specifically built
for Windows guests. The communicator is very similar to the current SSH communicator but does not require a POSIX-like environment. By removing the POSIX requirement, Vagrant is now able to connect and communicate with the Win32-OpenSSH service. Enabling the new communicator is as simple as setting the configuration option in the Vagrantfile:
Vagrantfile.configure("2") do |config| config.vm.box = "example/windows-10" config.vm.communicator = :winssh end
