Can you connect directly to Oracle from your client using SqlPLus?

Either your listener isnt started on the server - LSNRCTL START will sort that out

or there is a mismatch in the network config between the listener.ora on the server and your tnsnames.ora on your client. You have got a tnsnames.ora on your client havent you??

adding.
the nameserver you use is present in your tnsnames.ora?
the tnsnames.ora is referring to a correct Oracle-Listener?

You should first try tnsping.exe

This utility will make sure that your tnsnames.ora file is configured correctly.
If not, you should add an entry in the file with the relevant network information in order to have SQLnet to know how to connect to your Oracle engine.
