You posted this in the wrong category. It should be in the SQL Server category instead.

Hello
I've got a problem, I have a Oracle db in a Windows 2003 server, the server has already installed the framework 2.0, and in the same server I published a web site in asp.net 2005, and this site should connect to the oracle db, but when you open any page which execute the following lines

cmdComando = New OracleCommand
cmdComando.Connection = New OracleConnection( string of connection)
cmdComando.Connection.Open()

Then, I get the message
"A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server....."
I don't undersand why appears this message,
When I connect to this database from my source code in my pc, this works, this can connect normally but not from the published site.

Could help me please
Thanks in advance
