ORA-01017 error when connecting to Oracle XE with SQL*Plus

I have installed Oracle XE successfully. When I connect on the server, everything works, but when I try to connect from Windows XP client using SQL*Plus, I get the error "ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied."

I have installed Oracle XE successfully. When I connect on the server, everything works, but when I try to connect from Windows XP client using SQL*Plus 10.2.0.1, I get the error "ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied." Please let me know if it is a bug in Oracle 10g or if I need to add a patch or if any configuration is required.
