Need some help on this
we have a directory like
\Docklinks\Attachments in unix system
This path is set from back end Oracle
Update doctypes set path="\docklinks\attchments"
if we attach the documents from front end application then the attchments will store in the unix system or not?
Actuall we have to restrict storing documents in the server

I am a little confused over what you need. First thing to point out is that *nix system are case-sensitive, whereas Windows is not.
*nix systems use the backslash (\) to delimit directories, Windows uses the forward slash (/).
What you 'attach', whatever process that means will depend upon the configuration of both the application and the platform upon which it runs.

Other way round: Windows is \, *nix is /
Backslash to a Unix system is just another character, though it does need to be quoted occasionally (most shells, C programs, perl, awk etc).
Though if you're running Oracle on your windows box, and the file system is on a shared network drive (via NFS or SAMBA), then the network file system should take care of \ to / mappings for you.
$ mkdir "bs\\path"
$ ls -l
