ODBC driver not responding - please help [message #192307] Mon, 11 September 2006 14:27

This is what I am trying to do.

I want to connect to a database on another server from my PC using the ODBC driver. So here are the steps I performed.

1. Installed the Oracle 9i client.
2. Opened the Net Configuration assistant.
3. Performed all the steps in the "Net Service Name Configuration"
4. checked the tnsnames.ora file to see if the correct information was written. (and this checked out ok)
5. Tested the connection from the "Net Configuration Assistant" itself and connection was successful.
6. Opened ODBC Data Source Administrator. Created a Data Source Name and tried to test the connection. connection checks out from my machine but when i tried to do the same thing from our group server the screen freezes up and after a while it says "not responding"

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong here.
