You may want to take what I am about to write with a grain of salt  
but check out Interarchy.  I think it will do what you want.

I would (and I do) set up either a mirror or a Net Disk.  Both  
approaches have different pros and cons but both will allow you to  
work pretty much transparently with a remote server.

Kind Regards,
