    You can do it.

    Please make an entry in the tnsnames.ora. that's enough.

    you can find tnsnames.ora in orant\network\admin folder

    Accessing to ORACLE8.1 with lower version of sqlplus(8.0) throuth SQL*NET(NET8) is not a problem if you put Instance Name in your tnsnames.ora file and your Listner Process is up.
    but, with a lower version of Developer, you might not use Higher version of database as I know.

    For this case,
    sqlplus system/manager@TEST_DB

    (TEST_DB is Service Name is need to be set in the tnsnames.ora)

    the following is the example of the tnsnames.ora file.
    TEST_DB =
    (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS =
    (PROTOCOL = TCP)
    (Host = 117.0.8.1)
    (Port = 1521)
    )
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = TEST)
    )
    )
