not true

This from a normal rdp session (client winxp server windows 2000)
connecting to my oem repository (to which you all now know the deeply
ofuscated SID :) )

C:\TEMP>set oracle_sid=oemrep

C:\TEMP>sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

As the note to which Sinardy refers implies you would have been
correct prior to version 9. (and possibly win2000).

Now I am setup as you see to use os authentication (requires
authentication_services=<list including NTS> in sqlnet.ora). We do
have one system that uses password authentication (not my idea) and
that also works correctly on v9.
