Yet another "network adapter could not establish the connection"

Apologies for another one of these as I know there are quite a few and I have looke dta them.

I am having problems connecting to a database on a machine even when using the SQLDeveloper application that is sitting on the same machine.

For a database connection, if I type the hostname as the text 'localhost' and enter all other details, it works fine. However, when I change only the hostname to the name of the Windows 7 machine (with or without the full domain name), I get the adapter error listed above.

Please does anyone know what I would need to change to ensure my connection works when using the computer name?
