using UTL_TCP (Oracle 188.8.131.52.0 - Linux platform) we're able to comunicate to some application clients (Delphi - Windows platforms). Sometimes, a client is not responding (not due to our applications). When this occurs, an error (UTL_TCP.NETWORK_ERROR) is generated. We didn't find where (and how) handle timeout and others comunication parameters like those that are available in Oracle 9/10 (for example: tx_timeout). We need to use timeout and others comunication parameters in order to reduce latency time of Oracle computation (some procedure have to wait for server -> client comunication).
Thanks in advance.
