This document will explain how to configure SSH, which is required to run a RAC installation. Following the instructions in the installation guide are also correct, but sometimes this will not work, although the reason for that isn't clear. Therefore after some investigation it seems to be that the steps below will work too.

Starting with 11gR2 the Oracle Universal Installer the SSH can be setup automatically using the  'SSH Connectivity' button.
