Using the Oracle Net Assistant to route Connection Requests

This lesson invites you to work through a simulation that gives you hands-on experience using the Oracle Net Assistant to route connection requests from the client in a specific way. Click the Start Simulation button below to begin.
Route Connection Requests from Client
The next lesson discusses setting the TNS TIMEOUT value. From the General tab panel, you may specify the way that connection requests are routed from the client to a specific process, for example, always use a dedicated server process.
Oracle Network Services establishes a connection from a client to a server or a server to a server by passing the connection request to the Transparent Network Substrate (TNS). TNS, in turn, determines which server should handle the request and sends the request using the corresponding network protocol.
The Figure below depicts the graphical user interface used in the Oracle Oracle Net Assistant to configure routing in a profile.
