Unfortunately, no.

I attempted reading LFN's over a network, because the API seemed to be
readily available, but they turned out to be useless stubs in Windows
3.1x, just to provide API compatibility with DOS LANMAN's network
driver, which did provide some LFN capabilities.

The SMB (lanman) protocol used by windows 3.1/WfW 3.11 does not support
LFN's. Short of rewriting the entire network API, it cannot be done.
