I am attempting to connect to a remote Oracle database using the 9i
client.  I can successfully ping the server on which the database
resides but TNSPING produces a tijmeout expired error.  The TNSNAMES
file contains the correct entries and I can connect to the database
using the exact same client configuration from another office - which
is on a completely different LAN.  Does anyone have some
troubleshooting advice?  Could it be the firewall blocking port 1522?
Anything else we should try?  Any advice would be appreciated.
