Getting web disk port open in Ubuntu

I would like to be able to modify the website for which I am responsible, by having a copy of it on my computer. The hosts instructions say to ensure port 2078 is open on my computer, then copy and paste [https://(name of site)] in the Nautilus location box and bookmarking it will enable easy access. Entering the suggested information and attempting to bookmark it results in no bookmark.
Using [sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d 0/0 -s 0/0 --dport 2078 -j ACCEPT] and then [sudo netstat -an | grep "LISTEN "]
results in netstats of:
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 ::1:631 :::* LISTEN
I have OpenSSH server installed, and have issued:
[sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start] which yields: * Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd [ OK ] ]
What else needs to be done in order to establish a web disk on my
computer, so I don't have to keep modifying html code in order to change
things on the web site?
I am behind a netgear router using WPA2, using MAC addresses filtering.
Moderator, if this is not a legitimate post or needs to be moved, please do so. Just let me know to where it is moved.
Thanks for any help.

If I understand correctly, you want to be able to administer the web server's files locally on your workstation. You have OpenSSH installed (unsure if you have this installed on the workstation or the server...or both???). If you have OpenSSH (the server daemon) installed on the web server, you could just use sshfs. sshfs is a means of using the ssh protocol to mount a remote directory to a local mount point...meaning it would appear to you as a local directory (minus the lag due to encryption and network communication). All information is encrypted using ssh. Also, if you want you could generate an ssh key and save it on your workstation so that you don't have to enter a password each time you want to use sshfs.

Thank you Micheal for the information. I did finally find a way last
night to do the task but it was after midnight and I forgot to return
and let folk know it was solved. Not quite your way, which I will attempt
to do later, but it works.
Thanks again.
