Hello I am running jdk1.3 and I am trying to establish a JDBC connection with a Oracle7.3 database sitting on a remote machine. I have my URL and User/password set up, however everytime I run the program the there is no output. The program does not go beyond the DriverManager.getConnection() line. Not even an exception is thrown. It just freezes. Also I am using a thin driver to establish the connection. I was wondering if this is a common behaviour in some error cases and how can it be solved. Thanks
