- don't touch any setting on the database because it works. the issue is now with your oracle client.
- what is the error now on client pc after you changed the tnsnames.ora?

- try login this way:
sqlplus username/password@sname

- for sysdba try:
sqlplus "username/password@sname as sysdba"

- in the My Oracle Support site, you can search for doc "ID 1265183.1 Need To Locate The Oracle 10.2.0.x Client Specific Patchset". the doc mention that there is no client specific patchset. you can use the same 10.2.0.4 database server patchset for the client, please refer to the doc for more details.

Connecting with sqlplus (probably not plsql as you write) with a 10.x client to a 10.x database should not give you any problems. Even with older Oracle clients you can connect just fine to newer databases using sqlplus.

Can you describe what error you got? That is what needs to be investigated first.

- alternatively you can also use Oracle 11g client to connect to Oracle 10.2.0.4 database server:

Some basic questions, is your listener running? Did you put your tns info into tnsnames.ora?

OP_ZaharinCommented:
- make a backup of your tnsnames.ora file on the client first.
- then change the Sname entry on the client tnsnames.ora to the following:

Sname =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = wdev)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = sname)
    )
  )

- if it doesnt work, change the 'wdev' to ip address of the server
