1.usually the tnsnames refer to the connect string passed on during log on.These are available in a file called tnsnames.ora on the client.Hopefully one of the names in this file must be corresponding to your connect string connecting to your host machine , the oracle server.

2.since you are NOT a DBA you are lucky to forget these.

3.IF you are so curious type this command on the DOS Prompt like this
E:> tnsping <connect string>

where connect string is the one you pass on during log on in addition to the username and password.

with best wishes
