Did you just test your skills here, or do you really need help about the issue? If so, we'll move it to appropriate Forum.

If you have oracle client installed on your remote machine then you can import the the data using the remote imp utility. for that you have to provide the username/password@tnsname on the username parameter.

Sanka is correct. The remote import utility can be used to import the remote dump file. The tnsalias informs the import utility where to import the data. Sanka essentially already gave an example. From remote node (assuming an appropriate version of the import utility exists):

imp username/password@tnsalias file=export.dmp

I'm getting hung up here with the semantics of "remote dump file." Is this file on a separate server? You cannot import a file that is remote. You either run the import from the server where the file exists or ftp the file to where you would like to do the import.

Where is the destination database?
Where is the dump file?
Where are you running the command from?

I hope I'm not misunderstanding the OP's request/configuration. But if the OP has an export file on a remote server and the remote server also has the appropriate version of the import utility, then they can use that import utility to import that file into a remote database simply by configuring his/her Oracle net connection and running the following command from the remote server:

imp username/password@<tnsalias_of_destination_database> file=export.dmp

For example, the imp utility is on Node A, export.dmp file is on Node A and the destination database that it will be imported into is on Node B. This will work.

@OP Is this what you are looking to accomplish?

I think the questioner wants a different one. He wants imp utility is on node A. dump file is on node B. Import will be done from node A by accessing the dump file from node B.

My response was in regards to Sanka's statement:

Nevertheless, if the OP has the appropriate mappings configured, importing the remote dump file should still work. However, I haven't had the time to test this myself.
