    I have oracle 8i on Win NT in home pc.
    I am able to startup the Database thru the NT services.
    But if I do the startup from server manager, at the time of
    giving the command

    connect internal

    i am getting the error TNS:Protocol Adapter Error.

    I have given my sid in the tnsnames.ora and the host
    name is my ip address.
    Is there any default ip address which can be given so that i can do a startup from the server manager or what can be the alternative host name other than the ip address.
