haa haaaaaa haaaaaaaaaa! :)

When I reread the install docs, I did see something about how deinstall of Intersolve (ODBC drivers?) would sometimes mes stuff up.

tease the larger/complex problem apart, and try simple combos of 2 of each of the "problem" components, and get TARs going for each?

ok. I sort of knew that, was just in such horror/shock/denial that my brain wouldn't allow recognition. :)

I did read the whole section on networking in the Oracle9i/Windows 2000 book ( ) yesterday. He doesn't address the specific problem, but there is excellent explanation of the underlying network architecture, and knowing that might help understand how to set up and go through trace logs during testing of various component combinations?
