Is it possible to have remote access to emsrv (shared repository server) for VAJ Enterprise clients? In other words, clients that connect to the repository server that are not on the same LAN as the server host?

Although there is nothing to stop you from setting up access to a shared repository over WAN or Internet, such a configuration is not supported (see the EMSRV installation/admin docs). First hand experience has shown that VAJ instances accessing emsrv over anything other than LAN will have noticably poor performance, sometimes even to the point of becomming unusable, although a dedicated remote connection that is tuned for low latency can help. Remember that the network traffic between VAJ and EMSRV is more dependent on latency than pure bandwidth - there are many small packets travelling back and forth rather than a few large ones.
