Is oracle part of the question or simply a statement?


Link as in how? Link to file system such as nfs or link as in web page or link as in vpn or link as in vnc remote desktop or the list goes on?
How do you want this link to function?

You want to backup files to a remote host, but you don't want to move them there?

Surly you mean something else. No?

So, you want to access the directory from a remote location, right? If so, I'd suggest you to configure nfs server and mount the directory in the remote host.

^ nfs by design wont work between networks (both the server and client have to be within the same network).
for mounting a directory from outside a network try sshfs as suggested earlier.

i would like to create a link to this remote host meaning: it would be more convenient to navigate the remote's directory tree using the cp command (or using something like nautilus),

so that i need not move this backup files to remote host. so i can copy/ move data as if it is on the local system.
