TNSPing Timeout Expired Error

  1. TNSPing Timeout Expired Error

    I am attempting to connect to a remote Oracle database using the 9i
    client. I can successfully ping the server on which the database
    resides but TNSPING produces a tijmeout expired error. The TNSNAMES
    file contains the correct entries and I can connect to the database
    using the exact same client configuration from another office - which
    is on a completely different LAN. Does anyone have some
    troubleshooting advice? Could it be the firewall blocking port 1522?
    Anything else we should try? Any advice would be appreciated.

    You should definitely check with your firewall admin first.

    'a timeout expired error' is deliberately vague. Don't assume anyone
    is looking over your shoulder and can guess the exact error.
    If you get 12535 during an ordinary sqlplus connection attempt: now
    that is firewall.
