I'm working on a Windows 2003 server trying to connect to an Oracle database on a 2000 server and all was working fine. I've been trying to get PHP to work with IIS6 and changing some settings in Windows and IIS and all of a sudden I can't get an Oracle connection at all through enterprise manager or the net configuration assistant.
