I have a couple of questions. We are running Oracle 9.2. I have Oracle up and running on the server now, but I am having problems conneting via the Oracle client. I have tried a few things, but it is still not connecting. I am getting the "ORA-12571: TNS Packet writer failure" error. Also, now I can't ping to the server from the client machine, but as I mentioned to you earlier, the database is up and running on the server without any problems.
I have already tried the following solutions, but it is still not working.
- I fired up REGEDIT and then HKEY_LOCAL _MACHINESOFTWAREORACLE and then added EPC_DISABLED set the value to TRUE.
- SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE)
- I already checked SQLNET.ORA, TNSNAMES.ORA, LISTNER.ORA they all look fine and are pointing to the right database.
If you like, I can send you the files to take a look at them as well. I really appreicate all your help.
