Packet failure error when connecting remotely

I'm getting a packet failure error when I connect to Oracle Forms 6i and Reports 6i to a remote database from my Windows XP Home. It is connecting to Oracle9i, Toad and also Oracle Workflow. Could you please help?

Oracle products are not supported on XP Home. The most common errors I see from running Oracle on XP Home are network errors. Try this on XP Professional and your network issues will be resolved.
