No. I would expand more, but I'm really not sure what to say.
The server is most likely not even exporting its file system in
any fashion.

The GTK+-2.4 file chooser widget is architected so that it
could theoretically be used like this; there is separation
between the file system model and the GUI components. But that's
really meant for things like gnome-vfs support, and isn't
exposed directly to applications.

And even if it was, you'd have to design your own custom 
transport layer.
