If it's a lame network connection then it really doesn't matter how you
get to the file - ssh, remote file systems or some advanced trickery -
all of them will require packets to get sent over the lame network
connection as you work.  I suggest you pull it down, edit it and then
push it back up using scp (or whatever).  At least then you can get the
packet pushing out of the way so it doesn't slow you down as you work.


BTW, I don't know if you've used scp, but here is the basic push and
pull usage.

scp user at host.tld:/var/www/file .


scp file user at host.tld:/var/www/file
