Your question is more one of networking, firewalls and security than
Firebird itself; and I am not sure if this is the correct venue for this
question. In theory nothing keeps you from putting Firebird on a server
with a public IP address and opening its port (3050) in the firewall; doing
so would however be extremely unwise because it would make your Firebird
server accessible to the entire internet.

Possible solutions are: access through a VPN (virtual private network)
and/or whitelisting IP addresses on the firewall; both of these solutions
are outside of Firebird itself and are the same solutions you would use for
other network services that need to be remotely accessible, but not to the
entire internet.
