Goal

In 10.1.2, by default, Oracle Reports uses the built-in broadcast mechanism for Reports Server discovery. Alternatively, Oracle Reports clients can use the Common Object Service (COS) naming service for Reports Server discovery to submit report requests when the built-in broadcast mechanism is not suitable for your environment, as in the following scenarios:

*  Oracle Reports is installed on a machine that is connected to a network using VPN.
* You want to avoid broadcast traffic on your network.

This document shall explain how to integrate the COS Naming service into opmn using a standalone 10.1.2.x reports server as default (integrated with OPMN and the Application Server Control).
For 11g Reports see documentation found on the Oracle Tech Network portal for 11g Fusion Middleware.

**Warning -> This approach will not work with the in-process reports server that is automatically installed by the Oracle Universal Installer. For the in-process reports server, see <Note 393222.1>
