Don't try to access databases via shares.

The embedded model is specifically for "stand-alone" use, with the client
and the embedded server sharing the same IPC space, which is memory that is
managed by the local machine. If you want to access a networked database,
you have to use a server model that uses a network transport - meaning a
full Classic or Superserver server running on the server and the client
accessing the server via a network protocol.
