Hi,

I looked for a thread (and I'd think this would have been a common one), can
you connect a 9i sqlnet client to a 10g database?

From my 9i client box I keep getting :

> sqlplus jstrauss/jstrauss@tsprd

SQL*Plus: Release 9.0.1.0.0 - Production on Sun Apr 11 23:15:33 2004

ERROR:
ORA-12541: TNS:no listener

Whereas the same thing works on the 10g box

~$ sqlplus jstrauss/jstrauss@tsprd

SQL*Plus: Release 10.1.0.2.0 - Production on Sun Apr 11 23:15:37 2004

Copyright (c) 1982, 2004, Oracle.  All rights reserved.

Connected to:
Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.1.0.2.0 - Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options

SQL>

Thanks
Jay
