IMP-00009 error during import to remote machine

When I try to import a dump file into the remote machine, it is giving me the error "IMP-00009: abnormal end of export file." I generally do the export and import of a user, not the entire database. I created the tablespace with the same name at the remote end also and tried to import, but after importing a few tables it throws the above error. Can you help me out please?

When I am trying to import a dump file into the remote machine, it is giving me the error "IMP-00009: abnormal end of export file." I tried to google it, but I just got that an answer for this problem is to retry the export and import because maybe the export file was created in the aborted export session. I did this but still got the same error. I generally do the export and import of a user, not the entire database.

The most common cause of this error is that the dump file was FTP'ed to another server and it was not explicitly stated to transfer in BINARY mode. The first few bytes of the dump file are ASCII characters and FTP utilities may autosense this file to be an ASCII file. Yet the file is truly a binary file. So whenever FTP'ing a dump file, explicitly state to transfer in binary mode:
ftp myserver.acme.com
bin
put dump_file.dmp
(or use get depending on the server this was initiated from).

I don't use ftp and still have this error.

Oracle does not help users to find solutions. Better use opensource and free software such as MySQL or PostgreSQL, with better Google support for every errors raised by the soft and solved by the community.
