I have installed Oracle 126.96.36.199.0 Server on a Windows XP SP2 machine and installed Oracle 188.8.131.52.0 client on a Windows 2000 SP4 machine. I have no problems connecting to the Server machine through Enterprise Manager. If I try to connect through the jdbc driver 'ojdbc14.jar', I get a successfull connection very rarely and most of the time the following error is returned:
I do not get this error though if I try to connect to the database from the server machine through the jdbc! My guess is that there are security issues I need to disable in Windows XP..! Should I use an later jdbc driver or can someone tell me how to prevent this connection error.
