ORA-01017: invalid username/password error over VPN

Hi,


I am trying to connect to my client's oracle database (12c) over a VPN. I keep getting the following error


 ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied.


My schema password is something like AaBbCcDd


However other developers are able to successfully use the same db credentials to connect to the database from other remote locations.


I tried connecting to the scott/tiger schema and it works. I suspect that somehow my terminal is not able to transmit the password in the oriignal multicase format which I am typing in, and is transforming it to a single case (either all small or all caps). "tiger" works because it is a singel case password.


Appreciate any help in establishing the connectivity.


Thanks


George
