Pardon me, but in a recent move from Windoze to HP-UX data pump happily moved longs, blobs, clobs, etc with no problem over a db link.

Also be sure that you don't have unsupported types for db links (LONG, LONG RAW, etc.) in source database, as the DataPump will fail in the middle when it comes to them (because Oracle sucks when it comes supporting all it's own datatypes..., e.g. some versions of Siebel like to store LONGs. Maybe they will fix that in 14gR2 ;) ).
