ORA-12571 error with Oracle 8i on Windows XP

I am getting "ORA-12571: TNS:Packet writer failure" when I write tnsping [sid name] in the DOS prompt. I have installed Oracle 8i Enterprise on Win XP. I am able to create the database but unable to connect with Java using Oracle thin drivers from JDBC. It gives an exception, "connection reset by peer." I am new to Oracle. Please help me.

Oracle 8i is not certified for Windows XP. One of the most common types of problems with this combination is networking problems. While networking may work in some instances, it can fail in other situations as you have found. For Windows XP, please use either the Oracle 9i or 10g version. Also, you must be running Oracle XP Professional. Oracle is not certified for XP Home.
