Importing and exporting a database from a remote machine

How can we do an import and export of a target database from a remote machine?

As long as you can connect to the database and have the exp and imp utilities loaded on the local computer, you can use import and export. Simply go to your OS prompt, type in either imp or exp and hit enter. It will prompt you to log in and after you successfully log in, it will step you through the options for your import or export.

Note: Doing an export/import when not directly connected to the database (i.e. actually connected at the server computer where the database is located) will be slow. If you can telnet into the database server remotely and then run the exp or imp utility that way, it'll be faster.
