Thus having said you've made an assumption about the sshd and the kernel as well: Neither of of them will be corrupted by an virus. Can you nowadays be sure about that? If you ask me, there's no difference between scanning for files local (online) and scanning remotely, but the time and bandwidth consumption and the amount you want to spend for some licenses.

Keep in mind, if your files got infected there's nothing you can trust on that system. Set it up from the scratch or from known 'good' backups, having the latter quite difficult to be determined.

You can map the remote drive either through ssh2 as local administrator or using drive mapping as network admin. Most viruses will shut down or lie to an antivirus program running locally. Running the AV remotely isn't perfect and should not be your only defence as it will not stop a virus from infecting a computer in the first place, but it's better for cleaning a known infection and it may catch some viruses on the network that had shut down the local antivirus as part of the infection. Scanning profiles and network drives will point you to an infection that local anitviruses may have missed.
