Connection error while connecting to a unix machine using Putty Host name taken from tnsnames.

I am able to connect to HOST:abc in Oracle Sql*Plus.

I am trying to connect to a unix server (HOST=abc) specified in tnsnames.ora HOST parameter through putty.

However, I am not able to connect.

The result in putty is "host does not exist."


abc.def.COM =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = abc)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = jhk)(SERVER = DEDICATED))
  )

I was pinging with the wrong IP.

I pinged with the right one and the connection was made.

The machine has to have activated Telnet or SSH in order to allow connections via putty.
Try to ping the host to see if can reach it.
