No. You need to able to actually see and open the file as on a local drive or
network. None of the internet protocols allow that.

If you can set up a VPN to the remote server that would solve this first
technical hurdle, but generally a WAN connection is way too slow to use Access
like that effectively. Not to mention that a WAN connection is less reliable
and would end up corrupting the file.
