When attempting to run a report from a remote machine using rwclient, you receive the following error:
REP-0178 error Cannot connect to reports server <report server name>

If you are running reports from Forms (from a remote machine as well) using RUN_REPORT_OBJECT, you may get:  FRM-41213

Further diagnosis:

When you issue rwdiag.bat (or from Unix) from the remote machine, it is able to find the report server:
C:\oracle\10g_dev_suite\BIN>rwdiag.bat -findall
