svnadmin intentionally works only on local repositories.

You can use svnadmin locally to create a dump, and then put the dump
in a location where it's accessible by the web server, then access it
remotely.

But you probably don't want your dump available publicly. You could
protect it with a password... But you probably also don't want to
send the same data over and over again—the dump won't change so much
from day to day. So something like rsync, which only transmits the
differences, would probably be more efficient.
