From the commandline, this works:
C-x C-f /ssh:office: simply freezes and eventually times out. That
C-x C-f syntax works fine for all the servers our sysadmin has configured, which makes me think that one of two things is the issue:
1) Something is conflicting with the fact that I use similar emacs configs in both places (remote office machine and the laptop I'm trying to access it with)
2) Tramp requires some different treatment (ports?) than does plain CLI ssh
(setq tramp-verbose 10) but when I have the timeout, my tramp error buffer is empty. Any ideas?
