Please note it uses the word "accept", not "make".
I think you're confusing the issue of embedded not being able (and never was
able) to connect to a database over the network (i.e. share), and or the
issue of the the enbedded server not being able to (and never was able) to
accept client connections from outside the memory workspace in which it is

It has always been able to make local AND remote connections (and multiple
ones at that).
