For some reason I can't ftp to my remote systems.  I've already
asked why not.  sysadmin mentioned firewall, but it was
presumably all too hard.  I can ftp from the remote system to
the local though.

Yes, I'm starting with emacs.  99+% of my work is done on local
machines, and emacs 20.7.1 is available on all of them.  I only
found xemacs on the remote, but I don't need to do complex stuff
there.
