- If you want to find a sharepoint server you can design a database that uses that. How to: Create and customize a web app in Access 2013
- If you have Access installed on the local PC (either full or runtime) then using a VPN connection you can connect to the PC that has the ACCDB file and open the file.
- If you have a file server that allows one to remote desktop in (either Remoted Desktop Services or RemoteApp), you can use Access in the same manner as the afor mentioned VPN connection.

I have no real peference; however, that's because everything I do is direct either on LAN or Desktop.

Sharepoint has its quirks
VPN or other methods, I really advise that the client has a local install of either the Full Access or the Runtime and has a local copy of the front-end file.
This front-end file should have all of the forms and static tables, queries, and other stuff that normally doesn't change. Optionally, any tables that do not change very often, say no more than a few records every year, should be considered for the front-end file too. You can either code to check the back-end for updates or simply push a new file out and have a version check.

VPN, is not your friend for Access; however, many people have a very good experience with it and yet others go thru hell. As for multiple people via VPN, yes provided the database is split as above. Here again, the number of contections depends on the database design, etc...
