Oops. I wrote something under "External transfer methods" in the Info
pages. Maybe you didn't generate the actual ones?

That's indeed like a charm, because I haven't prepared it for _that_
syntax :-)

Hmm. Different to all other Tramp methods, the default setting is
anonymous access to SMB, which (unfortunately often) makes sense.

Yes. You simply need to double the $, in order to handle file name
expansion (the default way to mask $ in file names):

C-x f /smb:<LOGIN>%<DOMAIN>@<HOST>:/c$$ RET
