Refer a remote file

I need to refer a remote(present on another unix server) directory from my unix machine as a local file.

I have one directory D1 on and i need to access files in this directory just like they are present on my unix machine
Is there any way out... i read a bit about symbolic links but dont know how to use them for remote directory...
