The best way to edit anything on your system is to ssh (putty) to your Pi -
use the IP address and port 222 - then login and on the main menu select 9
"start bash shell"  Then you are at the Linux prompt. Then type (in your
case to edit the rpt.conf file)

nano /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf

This will bring the file up in the nano editor. You can edit what you want
carefully. If you decide you don't want to edit or you made some big
mistake type CONROL x.  Then answer n for no you don't want to save it.  If
you in fact do want to save it after an edit do the CONTROL x and type y
for yes and then return on the file name. The file will be saved. For the
changes to take effect you must then go back to the menu - type exit and
hit return then select 13 - restart.

To summarize nano is the editor and you tell it what file to edit. Typing
the complete path to it is generally the easiest way. Another way is to
actually change to the directory where it is located and then edit. That
would be done like this -

cd /etc/asterisk
nano rpt.conf

cd - change directory
ls - view the files in the directory.

So now you have learned a little Linux. It is good to know how to do it
this way. Some use winscp to shield themselves from Linux but I feel you
should at least learn the basics.
