Identifying entries in lookup tables

WindowsNT and Unix both have lookup tables for Oracle. I want to know what entries are present in each of those tables.
Are you trying to use an ODBC connection? You need to have some Oracle Client software installed in order to use SQL*Net to provide the appropriate protocol.

Each operating system has a number of files which reference key information for Oracle. Some of these locations can be referenced as ENVIRONMENT variables, like ORACLE_HOME. There are also important configuration files like:

Listener.ora
Tnsnames.ora
Sqlnet.ora

These are typically in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin on Unix or %ORACLE_HOME%networkadmin on Windows operating systems. On Unix, there is typically a HOSTS file which identifies other computers it knows it can communicate with.
