Does block level replication require local disk access (Block lev el) or can it work with a network share too

Could i run rsync on a linux server which is connected to a network share
(NAS) and replicate the diffs of the files residing on the network share? or
does this functionality require block level access i.e Local disk or SAN?
Many thanks,
