Theorically yes, but in practice no, as you already know :)

The locking will not work for embedded FB server hosted on an lan mapped
drive accessed trough multiple clients.

To the OP:
Firebird is a diferent piece of software than MS Access, FB is a
client/server RBDMS, the clients (workstations) ask for the server for
information, the server access the phisycal file read it and give the
information back to the clients trough the network. While in MS access
the workstations read the file phisically.

see you !
