Connecting to Oracle 9i database using Oracle forms 6i

I already have oracle 9i on my machine and I have just installed Oracle forms 6i.
I already have a database in oravcle 9i with schemas and procedures. And I connect fine through my Enterprise Manager Console with my user name and password

I would like to create the client using Oracle forms, but I'm stack at connecting to the database.
I supply the same user name and password, but when I reach the database name field I'm not sure of what to put, When I put the obvious database name, I get the following error:

ORA-12154:TNS Could not resolve service name, what I'm I missing?
