Accessing/managing Oracle from a remote machine

How should I access and manage the Oracle database from a remote machine with an Oracle client installed in that machine?
If all you have is Oracle client then you'll perform your database administration through SQL*Plus. You'll need to configure your %ORACLE_HOME%networkadmintnsnames.ora file to have an alias for your remote database. If you use the command line version of SQL*Plus, then connect to the remote database with the following:

sqlplus system/manager@tns_alias

If you use the Windows version of SQL*Plus, then enter the tns_alias as the third value after username and password.

You might also want to consider installing Oracle Enterprise Manager on your desktop for remote administration through a GUI tool.
