At first I would like to wish you, and all subscribers of this mailing list:

  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ! :)

Thank you for your answer. The syntax you supplied for Xemacs works perfectly :-)

/ssh:address@hidden:/ is the Tramp syntax for Emacs. With XEmacs, that
syntax activates EFS. XEmacs expects /[ssh/address@hidden/ as Tramp

Kai has prepared Tramp for using the same syntax on XEmacs; you need
(setq tramp-unified-filenames t) before loading Tramp. But it doesn't
seem to work correctly; I'm debugging it these days.

works. One disadvantage - if remote asks for password, xemacs does not ask me. But if you have a key with password - XEmacs asks for password. Since in 90% of hosts I have my public
key installed that is no longer a problem.

btw, about failed login it says: 'login failed' into status line, and into .* "*tramp/ssh host*" buffer
I see this:


GNU Emacs 21.3.1
tramp 2.0.36

In this setup tramp works, but ange-ftp tells me everytime when I try
to open
file via FTP:


it first asks for password for 'ftp'

and then it says:
ftp> open ftp
ftp: ftp: Unknown host

when I open file 2nd time, it works fine. (same way, no changes. just
2nd time)

Oops. I'll put it on my todo list for analyzing, but I cannot promise
doing it soon (the list is too long).

same effect when you do it from Find-File, and from dired. Please notify me if you need some more information from my side. I am actively using emacs/xemacs because I am developing Zope programs (it requires FTP) and doing many unix sysadmin tasks (this requires
SSH), so I am sure I can help with testing.

Again, big thanks for a nice tip about xemacs tramp file name syntax. I missed this point somehow.
