Hi, I am trying to connect directly to FS online database but I falied.
FORMSPIDER = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = fsdb.formspideronline.com)(PORT = 1521)) ) (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = awsdb) ) )
I got this output when I tried tnsping or ping.

You cannot ping fsdb.formspideronline.com. We only opened 1521 port to reach this database. Did you try to connect with Oracle SQL Developer without using TNS names?

Problem solved. :) I asked our security staff to open port 1521 to fsdb DB server. Now the connection is established.
Thank you. Regards, Vojto
