I'm using 10.2. Our server is on a different domain from the one I'm working on regularly. If I connect to the server using a remote desktop session, I can create a database connection. We have a dedicated domain for our server at I have not been able to connect to the server through my local machine. Of course it won't work by just entering an instance. I've tried various URLs, and I've tried reading about this, but I'm wondering if it's even possible. Anything I've tried, I've received the "Unable to connect to database server to retrieve database list..." message.

Anyone know how or if this would work? I'd appreciate advice or suggestions.
