Can I share FileMaker over the Internet without Server?

Post

Hi everyone.  I have 3 FileMaker users in total Pro 13.  In our office we have one computer that just runs FileMaker and shares it with the rest of us as we don't need Server it's expensive and overkill and I don't like how the databases work in a browser anyway as half my images don't work.  One of my users works from home often, so right now they have to VPN in on their iPad to use FileMaker Go or their laptop.  I'd prefer to move FileMaker to a VPS and host it in the cloud vs in my office on an old desktop.  Am I able to open certain ports so that users can access the shared database over the Internet by Static IP directly vs needing VPN?  Thanks!
