Data Pump over NETWORK_LINK

Here is how I currently copy a schema from production to dev in 10gR2 -  
  1. expdp system/password1 schemas=HR directory=pump_dir1 dumpfile=hr.dmp
  2. FTP the dump file (hr.dmp) to the dev box
  3. drop user TESTHR in the dev box
  4. impdp system/password2 schemas=TESTHR directory=pump_dir2 dumpfile=hr.dmp remap_schema=HR:TESTHR
  5. reset password for TESTHR (alter user TESTHR identified by ??????)

Now my question is: how do I do this over the NETWORK_LINK? What kind of DB link I need?  

Would the command looks like this?  

impdp system/password2 schemas=TESTHR directory=pump_dir2 network_link=mydblink remap_schema=HR:TESTHR
