This form of COPY runs on the server, using the server's file access
permissions. Are you on the same machine that the Postgres server is
on? Do you have /home/johnf's permissions set so that the Postgres
userid can read it?

pgadmin3 is not involved in executing this command.
There is probably some feature in pgadmin3 by which *it* can open the
file and feed the data across the net to the server, but this command
is not that.
