Hi,

I could'nt connect to my remote database (Oracle 11GR2) from Forms 6i on my application server, but on the same Application server I installed Oracle client 11G, and it is getting connected without issue on the remote server.
When I type tnsping80, it is ok 1 on 2 time

The error in sqlnet.log is

Fatal NI connect error 12203, connecting to:

You cannot connect a 11.2 database with a 8.0.6 client.

Forms 6i uses the 8.0.6 foundation layer and is not supported for use with an 11.2 database, except as part of an E-biz installation. See here,
https://oracle-patches.com/en/is/4071-introduction-to-oracle-e-business-suite?start=13
So you can make it work, but you are on your own. A good start is to go through notes such as this,

Interoperability Notes EBS 11i with RDBMS 12cR1 (Doc ID 1524399.1)

though of course you need a support contract to do that.
