I assume you are using GNU Emacs. XEmacs has a different filename
syntax, and both could be configured to use the "other" syntax, but we
don't want to complicate it already at the beginning ...  If you want
to prove it, you might check via "C-h v tramp-syntax". The result
should be "ftp".

This case, /address@hidden:/path/filename would be OK. Taking
ange-ftp instead of could mean that Tramp isn't loaded. You can check
it with "M-: (featurep 'tramp)", which should return "t". Anyway, it
might be a good idea to put "(require 'tramp)" in your .emacs, given
the load-path includes the Tramp lisp directory.

If that is fine, there might be a problem with the chosen method. Per
default, it should be "ssh". You can prove it with "C-h v
tramp-default-method". But there are some exceptions, you'll see them
with "C-h v tramp-default-method-alist". Read the explanation what
they are good for.

If all these settings are too nasty for you, you might give the method
explicitely. /ssh:address@hidden:/path/filename should guide you
to your target.
