what is your environment? windows or unix ?

it's on unix(sun solaris)

Shall we understand you were able to connect that way in the past?
Do you have remote authentication enabled?
Are you using the oracle account to log into the Unix box?
Have you set your environmental variables properly?

you need to use an Id thats in the correct group on the server (usually dba)

sqlplus / as sysdba
If that doesn't work (it should on unix, if your userid is a member of the 'dba' group) please let us know the setting of remote_login_passwordfile
