A remote *client* can create or connect to a database on a remote
*server*, of course. It must do so via a TCP/IP connection to the
server that specifies a connection to a physical drive that is
controlled directly by the same host machine as the Firebird host.

"On a drive that is local to the server."

And don't forget that the 'firebird' user must have at least group
ownership permissions to the filesystem location and at least
group-level rwx permissions to the directory where the database file
is to be created/accessed.
