[Quoted] Hello all,

I have received a .DMP file of an Oracle database. Unfortunately, I do not know any details on how this file was created. When I try to import the file using the 'imp' utility, I get an error message (sorry, it is in German)

    ORA-12560: TNS: Fehler bei Protokolladapter

Can anybody help me what´s going wrong? Sorry, but up to now I have little experience with Oracle.

Thanks in advance,
