if the remote image can be served up by some http server (say on that machine), then just embed the required html in your form. Something like this seems to work...

<embed width=200 height=200 src="http://www.alternatiff.com/tiffdocument.tif" type="image/tiff" negative=yes>


If you can't do that, then you need to have some mapped drive / nfsmount or whatever to the remote machine to access the file directly from Apex app server. If you're using embedded pl/sql gateway, you can't reference an external file at the O/S level. If you have an Apache based pl/sql gateway then you can access O/S level files after setting up the virtual aliases in the config file. pl/sql can read O/S level files and send them to your browser but this is going to be quite slow.

Locate httpd.conf and add a new Alias "img" or whatever for your directory. After restaring Apache, you should be able to point your browser to the new location to display one of the images.
