    Default For a beginner, Oracle can be a pain...

    ...to setup. You&#039;ve most likely not set up your "service" via Oracle 8 Net Easy Config.<BR><BR>Oracle establishes "listeners" that allow for remote connectivity to the database. In basic terms, it&#039;s like giving<BR>the Oracle database a network address (although this is not a technically accurate description). As part of the connection process, you reference the information in the tnsnames.ora file created by Oracle 8 Net Easy Config that tells your code how to find and connect to the database.<BR><BR>If you can connect directly via SQL Plus, then you are ready to try via your ODBC drivers and ASP.<BR><BR>Take care...
