It should work, as you have described. Could you, please, apply

(setq tramp-verbose 6)

and rerun your test? There will be a buffer "*debug tramp/pscp address@hidden"
which could tell us more. If you care about sensitive information, you
could send it to me off-list. For sure, it won't contain passwords or alike.

Best regards, Michael.
