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))
  )

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.

I was pinging with the wrong IP.

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