We are using a Cisco PIX firewall version 6.2.  Database is running
Oracle 9i with multithreaded server.
If we move the web server inside the firewall, then sqlplus connects to
the database server.  If we put the web server outside of the firewall
then sql*plus gives an ora-12571 error.  Our network people tried
opening all ports on the web server for IP traffic but we still get the
same error.
We know it is something with the firewall since depending on if the web
server is inside or outside of the dmz you can connect.  We just can't
figure out what is wrong with the firewall.  Any suggestions would be
