Can you connect to the database through sqlplus using OS authentication? What is your os_authent_prefix and how is remote_os_authent set? You should be able to:

SQL> connect /

and successfully login to your Oracle database provided the currently connected OS user is valid in this Oracle database.

Until we know how you've set your OS authentication parameters it's difficult to say what may be the issue.
