    Well, what suggestion was made to you regarding sqlnet.ora? If it was "Set SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NTS) in the "sqlnet.ora" on the client and server" then it was the right suggestion.

    And how is this related to certification?

    And if you are certified, you would know the product name is Oracle8i, not "oracle 8i."

    Whatever. Now that you know it is not "oracle 8i," why are you still using it?
