@Sriram:
Yes; it is an advanced version. Until recently, it was Oracle 7.1.

Started in read-only mode, it supports a long time "dead" application that is used extremely rarely for archive purposes, is written in Forms 3.0 and Reports 1.2, contains hundreds of reports and forms and there's no reason to upgrade it (because it is dead).

We don't have any OPS$ users in recent database versions, so ...



@skamransajjad: The statement is
sqlplus /
You don't need anything else. Username in my example differs from yours (which is expected; it would be quite a surprise if they were called identically).

You want to us OS authentication from a remote client? In that case, you have to set your REMOTE_OS_AUTHENT instance parameter to TRUE and crate an operating system user id OPS$KAMRAN on your local PC. eYou'll need to discuss this with your DBA, who will probably say "Never in a million years will I permit this" because of the security implications.
