I am using VB and oracle for one of my project. My software will be running on a network. The problem is that I am not able to conncet to the oracle database from the client PC (My project is a ActiveX Document EXE and uses adodc and works on IE). Tell me how can I fix it. I am using Oracle 8i and In the ADODC configuration if I donot specify the server name for oracle then it works well on the PC where oracle database is installed and it doesn't works if I specify the sepver name. The client PCs have not got oracle. Please help me out.
