[theora] Newbie Question: Seeking on remote .ogg files (audio)

I have vorbis audio files on a remote server.  I want to be able to listen to these files on my local machine using something like winamp.  If I point winamp directly at the file using its url (something like http://www.example.com/file.ogg), the file plays, but is not seekable. If I do the same with .mp3 files, seeking works fine.

I thought this might be a winamp issue, but trying to seek on a remote .ogg file using Firefox’s implementation of html5 audio element also fails; it works fine locally.

What is going on and how can I fix it?

Thanx very much for any info...
