SSL connections time out intermittently. This is especially true when LOBs are transported across the network using SSL/TCPS connections.
The client session terminates with the error ORA-3113 : end-of-file on communication channel
The same operations will complete successfully when performed over TCP connections.
The issue is encountered with 10g Release 2 database version and 10g client. When using 11g client, the issue does not occur and the same operations complete successfully across SSL /TCPS connections.

The errors captured in client trace file look like this :
