You can use the net8 easy config utility to configure your TNSNAMES.ORA. You can also use the sample tnsnames.ora file and alter to suit your requirement.

Check the O/S Ping for proper network.

Check Listener is running in Server.

Pl. tell me whether you are trying to connect as a client from the same machine where server is running or from some other client machine

Is your listner running.

Otherwise start your listener from services, if you have your listner configured. If not configured you can configure using wizard.

In win 2000 also check the Authentication in Oracle Service, change it from administrator. Then restart the service of oracle, try connect from sql+.
