The multiple links is a clue - I suspect that you've got the format wrong somehow.
My experience has been that it can be quite tricky to make a link if you don't do it habitually - I know I do at lest one test link if I haven't used the command for a while.
You need to make it a soft link - else there will be a lot of trouble resolving it - and you cannot put "http://..."
as that isn't a valid format for linux.
Why not paste a crude wxample of how you're trying to do it?
