Install an Oracle Home on your PC, and run RMAN from there. The release you install must match, exactly, the release installed on the server.

Hilson, if you work in IT (and particularly if you work with Oracle) you must develop problem solving skills: train yourself to find answers rather than asking others. One obvious approach to this question is to do a test. Download the software, and try to install it. Furthermore, you will get much better response from volunteer forums such as this if you show that you have done some work yourself before asking.
To give you a hint: as you have seen on the link that the Black Swan gave you, the software comes in both 32 bit and 64 bit releases. You will of course have to download whichever release is appropriate for your PC.

Hi john,
I have taken note of your comment which i take it very positively.

we installed oracle home and accessed RMAN

Usually from oracle server we run the following command but from RMAN how do we take the user backup.

EXPDP username/password DIRECTORY=DATA_PUMP_DIR DUMPFILE=D300913.DMP LOGFILE=300913.LOG SCHEMAS=tiger

RMAN is for a DATABASE backup. It is a physical backup and not a logical one as export is.
So with RMAN you backup physical objects; files, tablespaces, database not schema.

Even though you are doing export, not backup, the solution still applies: run expdp on your PC,
c:\users\john>expdp system/oracle@192.168.1.65:1521/orclz tables=scott.dept

Export: Release 12.1.0.1.0 - Production on Sat Mar 8 12:36:59 2014

rman and expdp are two completely different utilities used for two completely different purposes. rman takes a physical backup of the database. Those backups can be used to completely recover your database even in the event of a total, catastrophic loss of the entire database.

expdp exports the data itself, at a given point in time. Those exports can only be used to restore the data from that point in time .. and requires that you have a working, healthy database into which to do the import. Many do not even consider export (exp or expdp) to be a real backup, because it does not recover a broken database.
