Please be patient with my question, as I am totally an ammature at this.

I am running oracle on Windows Xp O/S. I am trying to create a connetion between Visual Basics and the Oracle database I created within a stand alone off-network machine. At some point, I was asked to "Enter server name". How do I get this information? I assumed it was my machine name, so I right-clicked on my machine--->clicked on properties--->clicked on the computer name tab---> and copied the computer full name and pasted it. I then put in my Oracle DB user name & password, and clicked on test connection.

The result was: ORA-12560 TNS:protocol adapter error

Please help.
