Re: Cannot connect to some hosts using tramp

This is what I tried:

m-x tramp

c-x c-f /plink:address@hidden:myextract.txt

Then I was prompted for my password.  I entered password and get these odd
messages in *scratch*:

Invalid help command foo.
open plink
Unknown host plink.
Invalid help command foo.
open plink
Unknown host plink.

I am not sure what the bar is called in Emacs but the grey bar at the foot
of Emacs says:

-1\**-   *ftp address@hidden    All L7    (Internal Ange-ftp:no
process)-------------
