On what platform Oracle physically sits, makes no difference to how
remote PC based clients access Oracle. You install the Oracle client
on the PC and configure Oranet (also called Net8, SQLNET)to point to
the desired Oracle instance. Test the connection via the Oracle Net
configuration tool and then configure an ODBC connection via MS. Or
you can forget the Oracle client software if you are using a JAVA thin
driver connection, but the connection type is application specific.
ODBC connections require the Oracle client software. The client cd is
included in the database cd set.
