Is it possible to give a remote server path in the exp utility parameter.
For ex:

exp USERID=user/pwd TABLES= table_A FILE=/remote/server/path/table_a_dump.dmp@remoteservername user/pwdforremoteserver

No.  It isn't like connecting to a database server the way you do in sqlplus.

Now if you are meaning to export data from a remote database to a local server then it goes:

exp USERID=user/pwd@remoteservername  TABLES= table_A FILE=/remote/server/path/table_a_dump.dmp

you can write to a remote file only if the remote filesystem is mounted locally.

The only way you could achieve this, as sdstuber pointed, is to mount locally the remote filesystem.

A way to make it is using NFS or SAMBA.

However... if you install the Oracle client in another machine, you can connect with exp remotelly and make that export.
