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
