I have wrote a little program with OCI to operator local oracle db, and it done well.
but now I want to run this program on another machine which have no oracle installed. I want to use it to access remote oracle db. I have copied the lib that program required to another machine(include oracle lib). And it can run but only get "Error while trying to retrieve text for error ORA-12545".
Does there are some extra set? Or I must install oracle on another machine? and after install does there are somethings to set?
The two machine are all Turbo Linux, and oracle is oracle 8.1.7.

thanks a lot.
