I wanted to know if some could tell me what unix commands to use to copy a oracle 8i database from a Sun system in a compressed format over to my NT box. I want to later use this compressed database file to import on a Windows 2000 Advanced server running Oracle 8i. I seen this done this a year ago but I forgot what the DBA did.

Just to let you know my Sun System is located at a remote Site and I will be copying this compress database
over a 256k frame relay line. I know it going to take forever to do it . I will be connected to the Sun system
Via telnet session

One last thing will this file keep all of the triggers and procedures in tact and what oracle tool should I use
to impport this file into Oracle 8i on Win2k

Thanks everybody
