Error opening ODB from URL share (linux)

I'm migrating some Windows machines to Ubuntu 16.04 and I found this old annoying bug. It seems to open ODB files fine when are local (mounted), but I strictly need "smb://server/share" URL feature. I tried ftp:// URL and it also not work.

Reason behind: A user shared workstation, most of them share the same guest user, and connect to a server with different privileges. Fstab credentials are static and I need something a user can fill with user/pass, like "Connect to Server" dialog.

The small business I'm helping made a "great" effort to redesign their DB in Base, and I never thought this gonna happend
