TOAD for Oracle connections - firewall issue?

I’m sure this has come up before, but I’m struggling to find any information…

TOAD for Oracle (DB Admin Module)
Connecting to Oracle database

Client - Windows XP

Connection to said Oracle database on Server A - no problems
Copied Oracle database to Server B
Using sqlplus (from CMD) on Client to Server A or B - no problems
Trying to connect to moved database on Server B, using TOAD - hangs, and hangs… Have to kill TOAD.

So, thinking - Firewall issue associated with location of Server B?

Can anyone help with a list of ports TOAD uses - other than 1521?
Standard location of logfiles within TOAD, and how to switch on ‘tracing’


btw - seems connection is made to the oracle database on server B okay, but no reply to TOAD…?
