You can implement the CanActivate lifecycle callback. This way you can either return a promise that completes to true when the call to the server returns that going to that route is fine or redirect to another route.

One problem is that CanActivate is a decorator and DI doesn't support decorators but you need to get a reference to your service to make the server call.

This comment contains a link to a Plunker that demonstrates how DI can be used with CanActivate

There are a few issues that lifecycle callbacks don't wait for the promise to resolve before they continue the navigation. I don't remember if this applies to CanActivate. There is again a new router on its way and it is unlikely that issues will be fixed with the old routers.
