you need more than just an internet connection.
1. if there are published AGS layers you would have access to whatever is webside.
2. if you have network access you would need the connection string.

With AGS you have wms, wfs, and geodata services that can be consumed over the web.
As far as sde you would need vpn, or some other direct access to the network.

The internet doesn't get you any closer to arcsde.
