Sorry if this is a dumb question - we have always used remote databases for each client connecting to the server (master) - but is that necessary? The client machines can access the database directly (or it seems to work) - is there an advantage or a reason to create a remote database for each client on the local net?

If your users can access the database directly, and will be in office any time they need to access the database, then I see no reason to set them up with a remote database.
The best reason for a remote database is for users that will be out in the field and may need to access the database while not connected to the network. That way they have a local copy and they can sync when back in the office.
Hope that helps.
