Error with CGI + Oracle on Tomcat


I have been trying to run a CGI script on the tomcat app server by enabling CGI support through the configuration files in tomcat (on windows xp). I have been able to set up this configuration successfully and a sample "hello world" program works ok.

However, now I am trying to run my actual code, which connects to a DB using DBI, but it fails and gives me the following error:

Error ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach) connecting to DBI:Oracle:host=<hostname>;sid=<sid>;port=1521

I checked the TNSNAMES file and I am able to successfully ping and tnsping to the <hostname>. I wonder what might still be missing! Can anyone point me in the right direction? Frown
