I've just installed Oracle 11g on a Windows 2003 machine.  The database is up and running fine but I can't use the listener.  When I try to connect I get the above error.  This was installed several hours ago so it's not a time issue.  I've logged in and ran ALTER SYSTEM REGISTER;  I've bounced the database, listener, and server several times but nothing seems to work.

Here is the contents of the listener.ora:

LISTENER =
  (DESCRIPTION_LIST =
    (DESCRIPTION =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = WINSVR-FALCON.Falcon-Domain.Local)(PORT = 1521))
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1521))
    )
  )

ADR_BASE_LISTENER = D:\app\Administrator


Here is the contents of my tnsnames.ora:



ORACLE1 =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = ORCL)
    )
  )

# WINSVR-FALCON.Falcon-Domain.Local

ORCL =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = WINSVR-FALCON.Falcon-Domain.Local)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = orcl.Falcon-Domain.Local)
    )
  )

I've run lsnrctl status and lsnrctl services and attached the content to this incident.

Thanks
