In summary, the O/P may not have realised that both client and server would normally have a tnsnames.ora file.

The client won't consult tnsnames.ora on the server .... because it doesn't know the way to find the server until it has read its own tnsnames.ora .

Similarly the server knows nothing about the clients until they connect and cannot know where to find a copy of tnsnmes.ora on a client.

Except clients can connect without if they know the magic words other ways.
