That's probably still OK.  If the ping worked, it's getting the hostname 
from your router, most probably.

Keep going with the commands from Scott, but note that the ssh-copy-id 
command is not necessary.  It will save you from having to enter your 
password on subsequent logins.

Also add '-vvv' the the scp command, so it gives you (very very) verbose 
output.  Taking Scott's example, make it:

	scp -vvv text.txt testing.sunnyside:/home/scott
