SQL*Plus Error OID generation failed

I received this error on a MacBook, when trying to connect with SQL*Plus to my database:

The issue comes from not having the MacBook’s hostname associated with the home IP address. To fix this, simply find your hostname:

Then edit your /etc/hosts file and add the home name to the home IP address:

Also make sure that when you edit the hosts file, that you are not connected to a VPN. Some VPN clients may overwrite the hosts file.
