Client problem

I'm working with an application that uses Net8 to communicate with an Oracle server. On a particular notebook computer, I'm having a communication problem from the 8.0.6 client to the server. This machine has multiple Oracle homes for 9i and the older 8.0.6 client. The home for the 8 client is currently selected in the 'Home Selector'.

I'd appreciate any suggestions for troubleshooting / solving this one because I'm running out of ideas.

The target service is called INFO_S in the net8 easy config and uses TCP/IP and port 1521 and SID=info

Here's the symptoms:

 From the application's log file:
12/13/06 15:02:11 Error Code -12571 ORA-12571: TNS:packet writer failure

12/13/06 15:02:15 Error Code -1041 ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist

 From the accompanying sqlnet.log:
Fatal NI connect error 12203, connecting to:

ESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))')))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=ORCL)(CID=(PROGRAM=C:\Program Files\appdir\theapp.exe)(HOST=TOSHIBA-XP1)(USER=testing))))

(plus several more entries just like this one)
