Looks like your remote host is a Windows XP machine. This case, Tramp
runs into problems, because it expects a Unix-like shell remotely. You
see sending it commands, which are rejected by the Windows XP command

If your local machine were a UNIX host, you could use the smb
method. But it is Windows XP either. Hmm, that's not supported by

If you don't need an ssh-protected connection, you could simply apply
the NTEmacs build-in UNC file names like //
(just from memory, check the documentation).
