Update on how to configure Oracle Client for the Mac OS

The best laid plans of mice and men go awry too easily. I wrote the article on configuring the Oracle Client because it was tiresome to hear how hard it was when it wasn’t. Then, my students tried the bridged networking instructions, which failed on our campus.

Why did they fail? They failed because our wireless network is configured to disallow students to call out to another machine. You might guess that’s to eliminate gaming across the wireless network. This also has the effect of disabling a call to a virtual machine running under a bridged network.

I’ve updated the original post to include instructions for configuring NAT to work. This should help those who work in environments where the router configuration poses access limitations.
