Is there a way to specify in a tnsnames.ora file to use a proxy server for connection? I have always directly connected to my Oracle server via TOAD. Due to the Sprint/Cogent outage, I can no longer hit the hosting server directly from my location and am looking for a secure alternative.

The most secure alternative that will work for sure is the 10g oem/sqlplus utilities that will always work through web browser.That's ,of course ,very bad alternative to Toad,I'd try to config Toad use Your server direct host and server or have something "tweaked" in the tnsnames file toad is using
