What specific problems are you having? Have you checked the appropriate installation guides?
Why such old software? The current database version is 12.1 and the current Forms and Reports is 12.2

Thanks for reply dear Experts,
Dear EdStevens
Yes it is Continuation that you highlighted, i have followed the Little foot kind advise and installing 6i on XP and DB 10g on Windows 2008,
what i am requesting is, how to configure both the PCs so that Client can access the Server?
i agree it is obsolete but our client want to use the same,

If you have installed the software and created a database, then it would seem that all you need do is configure SQL*Net. Or Oracle Net, as we are meant to call it now. You need to start a database listener on the database server machine and create a tnsnames.ora file on the Developer machine. Are you familiar with doing that?

I would suggest that you should start with the docs,
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/network.102/b14212/toc.htm
and come back with questions if there is anything you do not understand. Be sure to give detail of whatever needs clarification.

  • Is the database up and running?
  • Does it listen?
  • Can you ping database server from your computer? Can you do it using its alias or its IP address?
  • How is database's alias entry in TNSNAMES.ORA created - try to use IP address.

ORCL =

(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS =

(PROTOCOL = TCP)
(Host = 192.168.10.42)
(Port = 1521)

First, you said thatQuote:
i have do the following
Copy the TNSNames.Ora from Server where Oracle Database is installed
but now you sayQuote:
following lines i have added in Client machine TNSNames.Ora
So which did you do? Copy the file, or edit it? What is the content of that file now?

Second, you sayQuote:
Yes database is running
yes it is listening
how do you know that the database and the listener are running? What is the result of running
lsnrctl status

Yes i have copied the TNSNames.ora from server to Client, it was not working so,
after that i have just change the Same TNSNames.ora with the Above defined Changes in 6i, but same error is showing,
i have installed the 6i on Server as well,
so from server 6i can connect to server,
means server is working fine, therefore i told it is listening and running,
but when i try to connect from client it is working

thanks
