Windows does not include a Secure Shell service. You'll need to locate and install a third-party service if you wish to use Secure Shell.
You then either need to port forward port 22 to your internal IP if you're using a router, or open the Windows Firewall to pass port 22 traffic if you're directly connected.

Have your ssh server listen on port 22, and port forward on the router firewall if necessary.
