I installed Oracle 8.05 on Redhat 6.1 linux. If i fire up SQl plus seesion from the localhost, i can login succsfully as any user, If i go to a win98 or NT machine, I will get the following error after trying to start any oracle Tool
ORA-12203 TNS: Unable to connect to Destination
I have the correct entries for the TNS names file, The SID is defualt "ORCL"
using ip i tried both the ip address and just the host name in the tns file, and i tried it with both with the .world and without the .world. the same client workstation are able to connect to another ORACLE server that is running on NT, I am a bit new to this , so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
