    This is a guess.
    Probably you have set the tnsnames of the client machine. Trying setting the tnsnames present in the server.

    Yo have to create the alias in each tnsnames.ora present at the sever network/admin directories
    If u are creating database link from ORCL1 to ORCL2. then ,in ORCL1 server machine create a alias in tnsnames.ora to connect to ORCL2. test it by login to the ORCL1 server from the same machine (not from other client) and type SQL> connect scott/tiger@ORCL2. If this works fine then you are able to connect using database link

    In the source Server machine, in init.ora parameter file, change the parameter global_names=false.

    This will definitely workout.

    If it again gives the problem saying
    "unable to connect destination.."

    there might be pbms in tnsnames.ora
