I have a 64-bit client that is trying to connect to my oracle database which is a 32 bit machine. Is this possible? They have tried to use the 32-bit client software on the 64-bit machine. Is this the problem? Is there 62client software for Oracle 9i? Really need your help on this one. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Oracle 9i is pretty old. I’m not sure if there’s going to be any 64bit software for it. You’ll probably need newer 64bit drivers (10g, or 11). Once you’ve got the drivers setup then a 64bit client can talk to a 32bit server without issue.
