When the Linux Oracle server is setup, you are ready to configure the Windows-based client to connect to the Linux server.
Append connection information to the local TNSNAMES.ORA file.
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)(PORT = 1521))
(SERVICE_NAME = odadb)
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address you found in Getting IP Address to Register the Instance.
You might need to append registration information to both TNSNAMES.ORA files corresponding to the 32-bit and 64-bit Oracle client installations.
The ODADB and ODAPPM.INGRNET.COM values must be customized for proper TNSNAMES registration. ODADB is the alias name that will be presented to Smart 3D while ODAPPM.INGRNET.COM is the computer name where the Oracle instance is located; odadb is the name of the Oracle instance itself.
From the client that has been configured, open a terminal window and run the following commands:
C:\> sqlplus /nolog
SQL> CONNECT /@INSTANCE
The configuration was successful if the status displays as Connected.
