Your question is ambiguous. If you mean, can an embedded client library on
one node of the network use that client to connect to databases running
under Firebird servers on other hosts in the network, then, yes.

If you mean,
a) can a remote client attach to a database through the server that is
embedded in fbembed.dll on another machine,

or b) can a remote client use fbembed.dll to connect to database in a share
or a mapped drive

...then, no (and "no" means a big "NO", even if you can find a way to seem
to do it, using the highways and byways of Windows file-sharing!!!)
