MDM 7.1 Client access to remote MDS gets network conn error but ping works


We are migrating from MDM 5.5 to 7.1 and have installed on a new 64bit windows server with Oracle 11.2,

MDM Data Manager Client on the server connects to repoisitory with no real issues. We are still validating our upgrade on the development server.

Attempting to use the new MDM Data Manager 7.1 client on another PC to the MDS server comes back with a network error after a an hourglass delay on the repository field after entering in a fully qualified server name. Have tried the actual IP address as well. Both are pingable from the client and the server can ping the client.

The manual is not very clear on what exactly would be required on the client. Do I need an Oracle 11.2 client and tnsnames entry installed on the client rather than use the server name?

Any ideas would be appreciated!
