    Oracle XE client

    Hi Friends,

    I have installed Oracle XE client on my PC.
    I check on its home dir (bin), and I found the proram sqlplus.exe
    At DOS I run sqlplus system/manager but I want to connect to
    my database server on another server.
    How can I configure this connection pls? I look for tnsnames.ora
    but I can not find any.


    Thanks in advance to all and Happy New Year

    In Oracle 10g you can use following command on SQL*Plus to connect to another database:
    SQL> conn USERNAME/PASSWORD@HOSTNAME:PORT/SID

    In that case you don't need a tnsnames.ora. Only your sqlnet.ora need the following entry:
    NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT, HOSTNAME)

    Sure. You can create a new one on $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/

    Try to establish the connection before, may work because it's supposed to be default. If does not work you can create the SQLNET.ORA and TNSNAMES.ORA

    Tns_admin

    >>Thanks dear....but the oracle xe client did not even make a network/admin directory....should I create one?

    You can create it yourself, or you can set TNS_ADMIN pointing to an existent directory and put the file(s) there.

    HTH

    Cheers.

    but I can ping the server...
    ======

    I also set the TNS_ADMIN=C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\NETWORK\ADMIN
    in my environment variable and run
    >sqlplus system/manager@xe

    SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Thu Jan 4 08:21:35 2007

    anyone out there have tried installing the XE client pls.

    Note that the XE server side has no problem. I can use its sqlplus.exe adn can connect to any remote server defined in the
    tnsnames.ora.

    But when I use the sqlplus.exe found in the client bin it will not
    connect to a database even the local one. I even set the TNS_ADMIN variable because the client install does not create
    a directory %ORACLE_HOME%/NETWORK/ADMIN

    Another question is....where does my sqplus.exe client got the
    following information(default params) which it logged to the sqlnet.log :

    Fatal NI connect error 12560, connecting to:
    (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=BEQ)(PROGRAM=oracle)(ARGV0=oracleORCL)(ARGS='(DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES )(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))'))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=ORCL)(CID=(PROGRAM=C:\XEClient\bin\sqlplus.exe)(HOST =VISA_1)(USER=Administrator))))

    Note: it uses ORCL but my sid is XE

    I just want to edit this default sqlnet parameters but I dont know
    where it is found.

    You did connect wrong. Try this:

    sqlplus system/manager@124.6.144.116:1521/xe
