ODBC connection to Oracle 9 db trough Cisco VPN and ISA

I need to establish ODBC connection from one server trough ISA server and Cisco VPN  to remote Oracle 9 db. VPN works fine, i can connect to remote network, I think that I have some problems in the ISA configuration which blocking traffic to the remote database. The same thing works fine from the another PC (directly connected to the internet, without ISA, so I think that everything is fine with credentials). This issue is very urgent, thank to all of experts for quick response.

In most cases this is caused by the Oracle Listener working as portmapper only. That is, the connect port (1521 by default) is not used for data, only for getting information about the dynamically negotiated ports to contact Oracle DBMS. You can switch that behaviour off, but that requires to modify the target listener config, and a restart of the DBMS instance.
If that is an option, you need to set a registry value:

... on Oracle Server side. And restart Listener and instance.

If it is that urgent, call Microsoft and pay for an incident to be raised.
Alternatively, telling me the version of ISA Server and the level of Service pack applied would be helpful.
Assuming it is a supported version (and not ISA2000) then open the ISA gui - select monitoring - logging - click on start query. Make an attempt to create the ODBC connection - what do you see appear in the realtime log in respect to the attempt?

Thank you guys. The problem was probably in the fact that Cisco VPN client was installed on the ISA server and that cause multiply problems. I have moved Cisco VPN client to another PC in the network and everything work fine.
