connection to oracle th jdbc


I am trying to connect to my oracle 7.x server on the solaris machine from Java pgm. I am using the thin-driver classes [which make use of sockets] from oracle, as soon as i try to make the connections i get the error 'connection reset by peer' which means my pgm is finding the oracle server but the server is refusing the connection.

My question is :
do i need to make any change in the oracle server config so that it can entertain the socket connection for the database th. Java?

Please clarify.
