Can I invoke WSL python3 interpreter from the Windows 10 side?

I posted this on Ask Ubuntu a couple days ago but got no takers, so I'm trying here.

I use Komodo IDE (from Activestate). You configure its debugger by pointing it an interpreter, in this case Python3.

I have a Python library that is not compatible with the Windows version Python3, but I have it installed on Python3 on Windows Subsystem for Linux. I want to use Komodo to develop/debug scripts using this library. There is a Linux version of Komodo, but there is no X support in WSL (yet).

So I am wondering, is there some way I can use Komodo on the Windows side, but point its debugger at the "remote" interpreter on the WSL side? If so how do I determine the path, and do I need to have a WSL window open at the time?

(Why are there no tags for WSL?!?)

    Thank you for coming Microsoft Q&A.

    Yes, Microsoft Q&A have not related sub-forum for WSL, so we can't find related tag for WSL.

    As your issue about WSL is out of our support scope, I would recommend to create a thread on WSL special forum GitHub for WSL. They should be more familiar with your issue and should have more resources for you.

    If my redirection is useful for you, please accept it as answer. So that other customers will find right direction more effectively.
