Some few checks:

- Is there an entry "machine login user" in your ~/.netrc?
  I guess yes, because it worked for you before.

- What is your default Tramp method? It shall be "ftp", if you want to
  use ange-ftp. Check "C-h v tramp-default-method".
  Btw, setting tramp-default-method is mentioned in the NEWS of Emacs
  22.1, which you can read via "C-h n".
