So are you trying to push the backup to tape via networker from the client ?
Normally Networker connects to DB and then backs up the DB. If you want to use the client to push the backup to the tape, you probably need to invoke the networker agent(nmda) from the command line to call the script to backup to library. Your Oracle User may not have access to the Networker server --> tape library or somehting like that, if you invoke your rman script as Oracle user.
I never tried from the client side in UNIX but i have tried in windows pushing the backups to the tape via networker
