Is it possible to specify the flash recovery area for RMAN backups to be on a seperate server?

At present our database, archive logs and RMAN backups are on the same disk,  Not good !!!

So I would really like to specify something like this:-

Alter system set db_recovery_file_dest= '//SERVER2/oracle/flash_recovery' scope=both;

From the research I have done though, It seems that this has to be a local disk???

Failing this - Is it valid to host the redo logs on a seperate server to the DB?

Many Thanks
