Thanks, Hal:

I did this, with help from the following page.

So I was able to use the PC to edit a file on the phone. Though I have 
not yet managed to use the phone to edit a file on the PC.

Also I find the numeric addresses clumsy. For example, the phone says 
that its host-name is "om-gta02". How for example might I ask the PC to 
call it that instead of ""?
