[h-e-w] FTP problems with Emacs 22

Hello there,

Last week I upgraded my PC's Emacs distribution from 21.3 to 22.1, it
"almost" works as well as 21.3 did, one major problem, for me, I have not
succeeded to resolve.

>From my PC's Emacs I daily access files, through "ftp", on a remote Linux
server, running Emacs as well, this was working as a charm in 21.3, and on
previous versions of Emacs, but won't work on 22.1.1, here is what I do:

C-x d      ;; then in the mini-buffer I enter my user name and path to the
Linux server.

                ;; I ** instantly ** get a "login failed" message in the
mini buffer
                ;; and the *Messages* buffer displays the following.

tramp: Opening connection for address@hidden using ssh...
tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell
tramp: Waiting 60s for prompt from remote shell
tramp-process-actions: Login failed

;; the line saying that "tramp" waited 60s for prompt from the remote shell
is not
;; correct, the four lines show up as soon as I hit enter when prompted for
;; directory name by dired.  I never even get prompted for my password?

In my ".emacs" file I have:

(setq ange-ftp-ftp-program-name        ;; works with emacs 21 and ange-ftp
      (if (w32-using-nt)
                 (if (file-exists-p "c:/Emacs/i386/ftp.exe")   ;; nt and
                   "c:/windows/system32/ftp.exe"               ;; xp
             "c:/windows/ftp.exe"))                            ;; 95/98/ME

If I run the programe: "c:/Emacs/i386/ftp.exe" from a DOS shell it runs

Anyone has an idea on how to get "ftp" running from Emacs-22.1.1 on Windows

Thanks for any insight,
