I hope I found the right mailing list to ask that question. If not, please point me in the right direction.

What I'd like to know: is there a way to connect Python/Zope to an Oracle database on a remote server (over an Internet connection). The readmes of DCOracle and ZOracleDA mention environment variables that have to be set to local Oracle paths, which seems to imply that you can only connect to a DB on the same machine. Is this correct?

If so, is there any other way to make a remote connection to Oracle?

Thanks in advance!
