Hi Viewer,
You can try to understand what's wrong by the stages:

In the Windows machine:

I would check your TNS_ADMIN environment variable,
Make sure it is set to the folder containing TNSNAMES.ORA file.


on Linux Machine:

I would also check the listener by "lsnrctl status"


after doing both, any change?

>i get ora-12560 error...
ORA-12560 means that no packets ever left client; so what exists or does not exist on DB Server is 100% irrelevant to resolve this error.
ORA-12560 can result from a myriad of different causes.
From what URL did you obtain client.zip?
use COPY & PASTE then do the same as below
[oracle@localhost sql]$ sqlplus

ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
 *Cause: A generic protocol adapter error occurred.
 *Action: Check addresses used for proper protocol specification. Before
 reporting this error, look at the error stack and check for lower level
 transport errors. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the
 operation. Turn off tracing when the operation is complete.

Regards
Michel

Post what I asked, from the client, no other comment for the moment, I don't care about them, they are just shoot in the dark.
