i have check my sqlnet.ora file, the tns configuration is good because i am able to connect with toad and sql developer.

this is the sqlnet.ora

#SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)
SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE)

NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT)

#SQLNET.ALLOWED_LOGON_VERSION=12
SQLNET.ALLOWED_LOGON_VERSION=9

WALLET_LOCATION =
(SOURCE =
(METHOD = FILE)
(METHOD_DATA =
(DIRECTORY=C:\Users\TEKYI\Documents\wallet\oracle)))

As the error says, the username/password combination is incorrect.

So your connection is reaching the database. You just need to find the username and password for the database you're connecting to.
