Connect to my Oracle 10g database

You are here:
< All Topics

Would like to try your product but am unable to connect to my Oracle 10g database. It does not appear as though the connection screen requires enough information to properly connect.

In order to connect with the Service name you need to have the tnsnames.ora file configured on the PC on which you connect. If you don’t have the tnsnames.ora configured rhen you need to provide the whole string: Service Name: (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=MyHost)(PORT=MyPort))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=MyOracleSID))) And you need the Oracle client installed on the PC from where you connect.

Optionally you could also connect through ODBC. .
