    Unanswered: Oracle connection from Window to Linux

    I will have to set up a connection from a Windows 2000 system to an Oracle DB on a Linux system.
    Do I need to install Oracle also on the Windows system ?
    What needs to be done on Windows to access Oracle on the Linux system ?
    Thanks for any help.
    Pierre.

    I suppose this heterogenous environment is not easy to work with ?
    I will try this next week,
    Do you mean by "have fun", that is not a recommanded environment ?

    And over that, I will use ColdFusion on Windows to access the Oracle Dtabase (on linux), from the Window system.

    Any advise are welcome, thanks,
    Pierre.

    connecting to Oracle on Linux is like connecting to Oracle on any other platform... install and configure the Oracle client... that's pretty much it... nothing special going on there just because it's on Linux

    "have fun" is doesn't mean anything bad or that it isn't recommended... it means exactly that... have fun... as you can get to work now

    Thanks you very much,
    I hope ColdFusion will be able to create a Datasource on a remote
    Oracle database. (if you know ColdFusion).
