Hi experts,

I'm pretty new with multitenant and I've just created an empty virtual cloud server and installed XE database 18c for testing purposes.

After installing and configuring, a pluggable database XEPDB1 is created and I've test that I can connect to it from my remote PC with this syntax:

sqlplus system/[email protected]:1521/xepdb1

I'd need to connect from my PC using the tradicional tnsnames+listener like:

sqlplus system/[email protected]

But I'm struggling with it without success... can anybody help, please?

    On your remote client create a tnsnames.ora file and set TNS_ADMIN to the directory where you created it.

    You can copy the database entry tnsnames.ora into the client tnsnames.ora. It will look something like:

    XEPDB1 =  (DESCRIPTION =    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = your_db_server)(PORT = 1521))    (CONNECT_DATA =      (SERVER = DEDICATED)      (SERVICE_NAME = xepdb1)    )  )

    As you have displayed no errors, it is assumed you have sqlplus already on your remote client machine, if not you can download instantclient: basic or basiclikte,  along with  sqlplus from here:
