That means what it says: Tramp cannot find a program on the remote host
for encoding and decoding.

You must use an external method instad of, like scp. I'm not sure
whether this works for Tramp 2.0; recently I've fixed a bug in Tramp
2.1, where Tramp gave up in the same case although inline encodings
where not needed.

If Tramp 2.0 works for you with scp - fine. Otherwise, you might check
the latest Tramp 2.1 from Tramp or Emacs 23 CVS repository. Or you wait
for Tramp 2.1.16, which shall be released, soon.

Best regards, Michael.
