I haven't tried this, but I think you can redefine the function 
ContextToFilename[] to look on the front-end machine.  For instance, if you 
have a package named Algebra`Quaternions`, you could (I think) specify

  ContextToFilename["Algebra`Quaternions`"] = 
    "my machine\correct path\file name"

(or something like that).
