Almost entirely No. With one VERY limited possibility: you can mount a
read-only database on an NFS filesystem on a POSIX platform by setting the
configuration parameter RemoteFileOpenAbility to 1 (true) and uncommenting
it. Don't do it if there is the slightest chance that anyone could connect
to a read-write database that's located *anywhere* in the filesystem.

And PS a read-only database has to be made that way explicitly, via utilities.

Don't even think of trying it on a Windows server.
