Remote access to container fields

Hello, my database is hosted on a mac mini server, running Mountain Lion OS server, it's opened from multiple computers and ipads in my office.

There is a container field in which images and videos are stored.

To not unnecessarily increase the file size, these files are inserted only with the external reference. All files are stored on the server that is hosting the database.

When accessed from the office images display correctly and can be added or removed without problem.

The problem we have to set up remote access to the DB from outside the office.

We need:

(1) adding or deleting database files hosted on the server;

(2) displaying files correctly once inserted reference in the container field of the DB

This is possible if the files are inserted in the container field, but the file size is a big problem.

In short, the question is whether you can manage the external reference from a remote access.

Thanks for your help,
