HI,
I want to create a folder X on machine A which links to folder Y on machine B.
How can i do it in linux ?

Also i have a directory on a linux machine which shows highlighted in green which i guess is a link to some other directory on another machine.
But i am unable to view the details of the directory like where it is linked to n all..
what linux command can help me do that.

Thanks

How are your Linux boxes networked?  
Do you use NFS mounts, SMB mounts or something else?

check the file details with type and #file command to see what kind of directory is that ... generally green is executable file and sky blue is link file...

To accomplish this task i can suggest either NFS or SMB.

DBdumpOutfile: directory


ls -la DBdumpOutfile
--------------------------------------------
total 744268
drwxrwxrwx 2     507     507      4096 Feb  7 06:00 .
drwxrwxr-x 7 ytxdist ytxdist      4096 Jan  9 11:44 ..
-rw-rw-rw- 1     507     507 379346211 Feb  2 03:12 20140202031136dumpfile.xml
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ytxdist ytxdist  13082184 Feb  2 03:12 20140202031136dumpfile.zip
-rw-rw-rw- 1     507     507 357496745 Feb  4 23:50 20140204234827dumpfile.xml
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ytxdist ytxdist  12186081 Feb  4 23:50 20140204234827dumpfile.zip

#ls -li <dir>

This will give you inode number

#find / -inum <inodenumber>

if still doesn't show then use #df -h <dire_on_which_it's_already_Working>

Pls Paste here...
