You may find it interesting to know that you can use your own emacs to edit remote files with the help of "tramp" which comes preinstalled with emacs.

To open a file on a remote server use

C-x C-f

You can even tab complete to find filenames.

Thanks everyone for your time and helpful information on this post. I am sorry to say that so many of your questions and comments are over my head, so please forgive me if I don't attempt an answer

I found that I needed to invoke xterm when I ssh'd into the remote machine.

I had a basic misunderstanding of the processes I needed to accomplish remote file editing. Originally I thought I was using the emacs that was installed on my machine, when I edited files on a server that I was ssh' ing to. Now I realize that when I ssh to a server, I am using a version of emacs that has been installed on that server. Also that I need X11 on my machine so that I can use xterm to run emacs application (from the server) in an xterm window and with some menu driven support.

So the command is

ssh -Xf address@hidden xterm.

Thanks again!
