what changed since then?
a common cause for timeout is FireWall on or between client & DB Server.
1 Errors can be looked up in the online documentation PRIOR to asking a question.
You just used copy and paste without doing any analysis, this is a violation of Forums Etiquette which recommends to consult documentation first
2 Using hardcoded IP addresses is a big no no, as it will make your 'system' maintenance prone
3 12170 in conjunction with 12535 means one thing: firewall
There are standard solutions for that, they are documented, and I have posted them here many times, so I'm not going to repeat them.

I have installed Oracle 11g Release 2 Cluster Database and using DNS for SCAN connectivity. I am unable to connect from 10.2.0.4 client. The connection hangs indefinitely and then times out with the error "ORA-12170: TNS:Connect timeout occurred". Sqlnet.log recorded "Fatal NI connect error 12170".
I have an environment where firewalls are used. As you say, if this is a firewall issue, then how to workaround it?
