Any help would be awesome.
You have to use soft links (aka symlinks) as follows:
If your current working directory is currently
what filesystems are involved in this configuration? are you using NFS? are you using CIFS/Samba?
you cannot accomplish this from the local filesystem.
given clientA and clientB are accessing remoteA you cannot simply run
the way you solve this is to copy the files to remoteA or create a network mount from clientA to remoteA but this needs to be done on remoteA.

You can mount the remote filesystem locally (or the local system remotely), which is similar to want, but this depends on the filesystems on each end. If you're doing it from linux to linux, you can most likely use
