The traditional way is to print it. And keep the only copy in a locked room.
Anyone entering the room must be searched for hidden cameras.
Its all a bit silly really.  Would you be happy with advisory locks?

Are you talking about an NFS server?
What about using a  web interface to read the document?
A bit of scripting on a web server should do the job. Either limit it
to one IP address, or use a login with existing network
