Oracle Client - Installation Problems!!!!!

Hi there,

I have installed the Oracle Client Application and when i click on the option to do SQL*PLUS it asks for a username, password, etc?

I was wondering what have i done wrong in the setup and how do i set it up just so i can use it locally on my Computer??

Thanx

Re: Oracle Client - Installation Problems!!!!!

It doesn't sound like you have done anything wrong. This is typical sqlplus behavior. If all you have installed is the client then no database exists on your local box. You must now use the Net8 (or whatever) connection assistant to define an Oracle network connection on a remote host. If you want to use Oracle locally then you have to install more than just the client.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

you have to provide database username and password if you want to use sqlplus to connect any databases even though it is a local or remote database.
