There is nothing wrong with your connect settings. Rather, this error is proof that you are connecting to the database. The problem is that the database account has not been correctly provisioned. It lacks at least one key privilege (create session). It may be missing others as well. Check with your database administrator to make sure the account is correctly configured to meet your needs.

Are you sure the user is called EDREPROT and not EDREPORT?
