May be the engine itself is multiuser, but it´s non sense to think it as a multiuser, since it has been thought to have it in portable applications, having been put in pendrives and small equipments that will not share it´s data directly.
If this data must to be sincronized with another DB server, it´s adequate that the sincronization will be done by the portable application itself. Or it must capable of export it´s data and import data files like csv type (or binary files, a.s.o.).
If an application using embedded DB will capture data for a bigger DB system, better to think and plan it to be only data collector, yet if it and the O.S. are capable of multi-processes and tasks.
So I think.

No, only on the local machine.

It is the *only* way to have remote clients accessing a database.
