You haven't provided enough information to answer that question:
- For which release of Oracle was this application originally written?
- Which release of Oracle (all four or five numbers) are you using which generates these errors?
CONNECT has been dramatically altered in 10.1.0.x and later releases of Oracle. The granted privileges have been seriously reduced to nothing more than CREATE SESSION. In 9.0.1.x and 9.2.0.x the CONNECT role possessed these additional privileges:
CREATE DATABASE LINK
CREATE VIEW Thus an application which relied upon the CONNECT role in 9iR2 and earlier releases would not properly function against a 10gR1 or later database.
Provide more information and a better answer may be forthcoming.
