For hostname specification you could use both ""
and "", because they are resolved to the same IP

Here a Tramp optimization happens. Usually, you should write
"/method:address@hidden:localpath". Because this is longish, you can
abbreviate it. "user" is mostly expanded to your local login name, and
"method" is mostly expanded to the value of variable
`tramp-default-method'. Exception: there is the variable
`tramp-default-method-alist'. If you check its default value you'll
see, that all hostnames which start with the string "ftp." will use
the method "ftp". So if you want to use the method "ssh" on host
"", the method "ssh" must be given explicitely.

See explanation above: No default values have been applied, because
you have given all parts of the filename, inclusive the method
"ftp". And the host is virtually the same.

This looks like an ssh problem. Did you check that the following
command works for you:

ssh -l usr1066

It does when you open "/address@hidden:".
