    IO Error: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection

    3017547

      Hello All,

       

      Without installing oracle on my laptop, just using Sql developer to connect to Remote Database, Can i connect like that?. I got the connection string and i created a tnsnames.ora file and saved on desktop and trying to connected but getting IO error.

       

      test=

      (DESCRIPTION =

         (ADDRESS_LIST =

           (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = IP Address)(PORT = 1521))

         )

         (CONNECT_DATA =

           (SID = newsid)

         )

      )

       

      Is something i'm missing?

       

      Thanks

          An ORA file won't do you any good unless you have Oracle client on your machine.

           

          Just create a 'basic' connection using the JDBC jar file that is part of Sql Dev.
