DBConnect not working with Oracle

Path Finder

I have installed both ojdbc5 and 6. I have tried to manually enter in the entry to the databases.conf file. I am still getting the ORA-12514 error. The credentials work as I can connect with other utilities besides dbconnect. Anyone else have any tricks that I can try to get this working? My sql db's are working fine in the app.

Hi. There is an example of the DB Connect configuration in the white paper "Real-Time Oracle 11g Log File Analysis" available at Hopefully this will help. A lot of other data input methods are also described.
