The autorevert maintainer(s) have decided to take remote files out of
the game. See the Commentary in autorevert.el:

;; Since checking a remote file is too slow, these modes do not check
;; or revert remote files.

With Emacs 23.2, auto-revert-tail-mode will work for remote files. You
can try any of the Emacs 23.1.9x prereleases.

Best regards, Michael.
