You cannot connect remotely to SYS without SYSDBA or SYSOPER role.

Why are you using SYS from Toad anyway? SYS is recommended only for full access DBA / maintenance operations, not general work.

Use SYSTEM user if you need a DBA connection. That will allow connection without SYSDBA role.

when you enter the username and password on the toad login screen there is  a "connect as" dropdown with selections of Normal, SYSOPER and SYSDBA

choose one of them.  

Note, most db's do not allow remote connections as SYS so you may not be allowed even if you pick the correct setting
