I'd like to tail a file that's sitting on another server, but simply typing:

tail address.of.server:/file/to/tail >> output

doesn't seem to be doing the trick:

tail: cannot open "address.of.server:/file/to/tail" for reading: No such
file or directory

I'm fairly new to bash and linux in general, so how should I form this?  I
know how to access this file normally, and I CAN do this by just logging
onto the server and then typing:

tail /file/to/tail >> output

but I, for whatever reason, want to consolidate everything to one statement,
if possible.
