Question is where do I set host string on server for client

SQL PLUS works on server but doesn't work on client.

I tried configuring hostname for client from Net8 Easy Config but test failed. Where do I get reqd.knowledge like host name,sid, etc. to configure client. It gives error related to TNS.

1. edit your tnsnames.ora file available at
say for this entry,

      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = *******)(PORT = 1521))
      (SID = cpub)

staffa_cpub = is the connec string
host        = name of your machine or IP
sid         = your datbase sid

for this tnsnames.ora config,
i would connect like
