Well that is why "ssh -l abc ipaddress" and "ssh abc ipaddress" work
for you, but "ssh ipaddress" won't.

You are trying to login to your remote machine with the username you
use on your local machine! If you want to set it up so that you don't
need to type the username, you need to investigate the .ssh/config
file ("man ssh_config" for details)
