Hi, if anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
I have been trying to make a simple java applet connect to an Oracle 7.1
database running on HP/UX. I tried first using Oracle's thin drivers.
Their documentation said it only worked with 7.2 and up, but I wanted to
try anyway. It didn't work. Also, I am running/writing this java
applet from a Windows95 desktop on the same Lan as the Oracle HP/UX
Someone from this newsgroup was nice enough to give me the link to SCO's
JDBC drivers for Oracle (as well as other databases). I got everything
set up, but could not connect. I modified the code to explicitly
connect to the database I wanted it to (so it wouldn't use the user
interface to get connection options). I also address Universal Connect
code for Netscape security overrides because I need this to work with
This is the message I get:
** SQLException caught ***
Message: Unable to connect to data source: Cannot get port number from
portmapper: server may not be running
I got this same message weather I used the applet or application version
of the example connectivity program that was included.

also used Port=1521, as an option to see if that might be the problem.
