Thanks, Tory, that was a help. I was trying to run ssh from command
prompt rather than shell. 

Can I expand on my question with one that is a bit OT? I use ~/.netrc
(despite the hazards) to automate log in to remote machines. However
things seem to have changed over the years since I last used it. I have
a stanza like this, where anon will be the name of remote machine on the

   machine root@anon
        login root
        password <password>

When in Emacs I log into the remote machine with 

   C-x C-f /root@anon:/home/user

I am prompted for the password which is not automatically sent:

   Password for /scpc:root@anon

This "scpc" method is new to me. I tried putting into .netrc the machine
value scpc.root@anon and scpc:root@anon, but still am prompted for the
password. The Tramp manual and man netrc no help.
