    I am learning OF 11i on my own, and obtained 30 day trial CDs.
    I installed Vision Demo env. of 11i on Windows 2000 server configured as a domain controller.
    After several attempts the installation finally went through. I did the post installation steps until the installation
    of JInitiator correctly. For Jinitiator it asked to launch the personal home page by logging into Oracle Applications signon screen. How do I get this screen to show on my desktop? Since I couldn't
    get this to work, I launched the Jinitiator from its executable in the respective directory, it installed.
    Then I rebooted the machine. Manually ran the APPSORA.cmd. Launched IE and typed the address
    htttp://.: I expected the personal home page of OF applications to show.
    Ie finds the site, but says something like opening page .. connecting to site .. downloading from
    site:res://C:\WINNT\system32\shdoclc.dll\dnserror.htm and hangs forever. Is it a Jnitiator related error ormy network settings are not right. I am not connected to the network even though I have a network card
    If there is an answer to this problem on metalink, please copy paste it in your replies as I cannot access
    that site during my 30 day trial. Please help!

    have you set up your hosts file . you need to open your hosts file ( both on server and client ) and add ( for instance ) :


    Oracleprod => is your machine name
    oracle => is your domain

    at your browser type :


    Port here depends on your type of installation , it might be 8000 or 8001

    8000 is for production
    8001 is for test

    We usually use hosts file if there is no DNS on the network.

    Good Luck
