creating link for a file of remote server

Hi,

I use to access a file on remote server. Can I create a link for this file present on remote server on my local server, if yes then please let me know.


Thanx in advance.
# 2  
If the remote file is available to your local machine via NFS, then yes.
# 3  
NFS . Yes you can. What do you meant by "creating link"?
# 4  
The way I can create link (hard/soft) for files present on my local server, can I create the same for file present on remote server,

Also, please tell me the usage of NFS in detail.

Thanks in advance.

It would help if you tell what OS your local and remote servers are running.
