Can the On-premises data gateway access files from another location?

Say I have an On-premises data gateway installed on server1.

If I build a report that accesses some excel file from server2 and publish it, can the on-premises data gateway on server1 access the files on server2?

 

I'm basically trying to set up a refresh schedule and the gateway doesn't see the excel files I used to create the report.

@WorkHard if server1 can see the files on server2 and it is on the same network, it should work.

Also, the gateway must be running or online on the other server, and to allow other users in the domain use this gateway, you can add their account to the gateway user in Power bi service.
