SQL Developer won't connect to database - Vendor code 17002

I have latest Oracle Sql Developer 3.2.1 installed, and I cannot connect to databases. I typed correct SID, port number, user and password and it won't connect saying: "The Network Adapter could not establish the connection. Vendor code: 17002"

Do I need oracle client installed on my machine to connect to remote server using sql developer?

I am tunelling the connection using putty SSH to remote machine, and I put localhost as host in connection details in sql developer, but it works on another computer. I have also JDK 1.7.0_06 installed, and while starting sql developer I get warning that this product is supported with minimum version of 1.6.0_04 and less than 1.7. May this be problem?

Thanks in advance
