    On my HP server I had nothing else to do. On NT4 I needed to modifiy the registery setting. If you need more here get back to me at gmazzone@plansys.com and I'll let you know the metalink docs to look up for NT settings.

    Take a look at this document http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/...1&blackframe=0
    You have to install CMAN to get thru a farewall.

    Not so. I am going thru a firewall with out using CMAN. I have a listener set on the server between 2 firewalls (one from outside and the oter between the server and inside users). I run in dedicated server mode. On the database server I modified the registery on NT with the following:
    USE_SHARED_SCOKETS = TRUE.

    It works only for NT. CMAN is an universal solution for any OS platform and you get some extra security with it (access list).

    Using USE_SHARED_SCOKETS = TRUE might be a viable sollution if you do not want to use (or can't use) Connection Manager, but there is one quite important fact to be aware of if you want to implement this: you can't restart the listener without first killing all the existing connections made through shared sockets.

    The only CMAN method available for your Solaris database.
