    Unanswered: Oracle Management Server 9i

    Hello:

    I need your help.

    I have installed Enterprise Manager in my laptop so that I could manage my Oracle database (9i) in my server. I am not being able to connect to OMS in my server, and I feel I am missing out on certain firewall rules. If I switch off the firewall in my server, I get through.

    Could you kindly help?

    Regards - Prabir.

    Why are you posting about a firewall issue in this Oracle forum?
    Why do you expect assistance when you do not even name the Firewall giving you grief?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.

    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Yes - you are right - I should have mentioned Windows XP firewall.

    And as regards why the firewall issue in Oracle Forum? Well the subject itself explains it. Doesn't it?

    A solution is to switch off the firewall in the server.

    That solution I tried. It works but not recommended.

    I could be mistaken, but I don't think the XP Firewall has the capability to peacefully cohabitate with Oracle SQL*Net.
    Your choices may be VERY limited.

    Those who live by the GUI, die by the GUI.

    Enterprise Manager is NOT required to manage Oracle RDBMS.

    Hi:

    Thank you for your response.

    I had trouble getting SQL Plus connecting from my client though TNSping was respomding. I had to include some programs in the server firewall to have SQL to respond.

    I know that certain port or ports need to be included in the exception of the Server firewall, but I forgot what they are. This will then allow the server to connect OMS from my laptop.

    Thanks - Prabir.
