Trouble connection to Oracle

Hello,

 

I want to connect to a database, but when I tried to connect I get this message -> Oracle: ORA-12170: TNS: Connection timed out.

 

When I put the server I have put mlxsga I already installed Oracle version 12.2.0, and the Network / Admin file there are two .txt (sqlnet and tsname).


File sqlnet:
SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT)

File tsname:
MLXSGA =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xx.xx.xx.xx)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = mlxsga)
)
)


How can I connect to this database??

 

Thanks!!

 

Xavi

Hi, @XaviOV 

 

The problem is that the Oracle service is running on a IP address, and the host is configured with another IP address.

You can reference the sovled question:oracle - ORA-12170: TNS:Connect timeout occurred - Stack Overflow
