Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version: 8.1.5.0.0 to 9.2.0.8.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This article applies only to listener versions prior to 10g.

Goal

The purpose of this document is to describe how to prevent remote administration of the 8i or 9i listener.  This document does not apply to 10g or later versions of the listener.   Version 10g and newer listeners include a security feature that will not allow remote administration of a listener unless that feature is disabled.  See the following notes for more information:  <<Note 260986.1>> and <<Note 372717.1>>

A brief description of the security implications of not setting a password is included as well as some additional references on that subject.
