That depends upon your tramp-default-method. Tramp will use that if
none is specified in the file line. In your case with ssh as the
default you need to specify /ftp:...

Oh, you do wish to use ssh, so no you don't need /ftp:.

    Haines> and emacs simply wants again to create the directory.

As to why it doesn't work correctly I'd suggest checking you buffers
for various :-

 *  *tramp/scp address@hidden   347     Fundamental     
 *  *tramp/scp address@hidden  20 Fundamental 

to see if tramp has actually tried to setup a connection.
