Packet writer failure error with install

While installing Oracle I got an error that I could not install the TNS listener. I had two options: ignore or abort. I chose ignore. When finished I tried to connect to SQL with the valid username and password, and I got this error message: "ORA-12571: TNS:packet writer failure."

I installed Oracle8i on Windows 2003 Server; while installing I got an error that I could not install the TNS listener. I had two options: ignore or abort. I chose ignore and it was repeated many times. When finished I tried to connect to SQL with the valid username and password (system/manger@IbnRushd) which is the global name of the database, and I got this error message: "ORA-12571: TNS:packet writer failure." What should I do?
Oracle8i is not certified on the Windows 2003 Server platform so this may explain the problems you have encountered. To view the Oracle certification matrix, go here. You will see that only Oracle 9.2 and above are certified to run on Windows 2003 Server.
