Angry ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist

hello,
I'm trying to connect to a database but recieve the following error.
ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
This is the command I'm running.
>sqlplus / @oracle_sid
I've checked all the UNIX environment variables and they all look fine.

Any suggestions.
