I need to set up the replication for DBF CDX database files, is it possible
to do it with free tables?
And Can I set it up the file which are in subdirectories of the main one.

Thanks in advance

Replication requires the tables to be bound to a data dictionary. Now, DBF
tables bound to a data dictionary can still be opened as free tables, but
in that case no replication would take place.

It does not matter what directory the tables are in. Once a table is bound
to a data dictionary, the data dictionary knows where to find it.
