Oracle 8i enterprise edition - client installation

Hi,

I want to connect to an Oracle 8i enterprise edition database. I want to install Oracle client on a windows Vista machine.

Should I install any patch after the client installation? Can I connect to Oracle 8i DB using newer version of client software?

Please send the download link for Oracle 8i client to use from a windows machine.


Thanks
Ashok

    V8 is obsoleted & unsupported.
    Only V11 software is supported & freely available.
    However V11 is NOT compatible with V8!
