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
You can even tab complete to find filenames.

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.
