Setting Up Oracle 11g On Windows

    Hello All,

    Are there any of you that have recently installed Oracle 11g? I have recently installed it sucessfully according to the instructions given on the Oracle website. However there is one part that I am stuck at.

    In the installation instructions there is a section entitled. 'Testing Your Installation'.
    It mentions the following:

    Open a browser and enter the following URL:


    where <hostname> should be changed to your machine name, IP address, or localhost.

    Because Enterprise Manager Database Control is a secure site, you need a certificate. Select the Accept this certificate permanently option, and then click OK.

    ^^I have opened Firefox and put this in but Firefox brings up an error message stating: Firefox can't find the server at <hostname>. I have changed hostname to my own name e.g. https://<John>:1158/em

    Can anyone shed any light on this,
    Thanks in advance

    is it the same in internet explorer?

    Also what Antivirus do you have as most have web protection and isnt the web console Java based, do you have Java installed?

    is this the free Oracle database product?

    Thankyou all for the kind responses.
    In the program menu from 'Start' there is an option called: Database Control - orcl

    This cleared things up when selected.
