How to post backup to remote server with RMAN

I need to take a backup of the local server and post that backup to the central server via Internet with RMAN. I can back up the database and connect to the remote database. But I can't find how to post the backup to the remote server.

I recently handled a project whereby we have many site servers at various places in our country and there is a central server in Delhi (India). My project is to take a backup of the local server and post that backup to the central server via Internet. I chose the RMAN (Recovery Manager) approach. Using that approach I can back up the database and connect to the remote database. But I can't find how to post the backup to the remote server. Please give me guidance regarding this project.
Basically, there are two options to have RMAN back up to a remote server. One, back up locally and then FTP the backup to the remote server. Two, create a network file share from the database server to the remote server. Have RMAN back up to the network file share. It will think the file system is local, but in actuality, the file system is in another location.
