My tnsnames.ora file is as follows:

# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

LISTENER_ORCL =

ORCL =

    )

      (SID = orcl)
    )
  )

On Centos server I can log in using sqlplus too. I changed tnsnames.ora on windows to same as server.I have added oracle host information in windows host file and I can ping oracle host and telnet host on port 1522.

I have disables service iptables so no type of firewall exists on centos.

But I still get following error on Windows client:

On your Windows client, you need to specify the TNS alias @ORCL, or else it assumes you're trying to connect to a local database running on your Windows client, which there isn't one. Also, system as sysdba generally isn't used, not even sure if that makes sense. SYS as sysdba and just plain system are used.

If you don't have tnsnames.ora set up on your Windows client, you can still connect via EZCONNECT string @"hayer:1522/orcl" instead of setting up tnsnames (yes, the quotes are needed).

Enter user-name: system@"hayer:1522/orcl"

    Side comment: I use SYSTEM for 99% of my DB Admin tasks. SYS (as SYSDBA) is more powerful and not needed for general tasks. You can't accidentally shut down the database when logged in as SYSTEM. – Joshua Huber Jun 24 '14 at 17:06
