How to view a PDF on shared drive on a tablet without downloading it to the device first?

Can Ipad (or any other tablet) be used to browse and view a folder of documents (mostly PDF/Office) on a shared drive over Wifi without actually downloading the file to the device?

We collaborate on documents in network drives and Sharepoint sites. The size of the folders are too large to be replicated to a tablet device. I would like to use a table to view PDF and Office files directly over Wifi that are on a shared drive.
I know apps like Good Reader and File Browser (NetPortal) are capable of doing this and I used them; but they all require you select and download the file you want to view to your tablet first.
Is there an app or a solution that allows me to view files on a shared drive over Wifi directly without the need for downloading?
