Introduction to Oracle Networking Topology

Welcome to Oracle Network Topology, the first course in the two-part Oracle Network Administration Certification Series.
This course is designed to introduce you to the networking tools and concepts associated with Oracle, the industry-leading database software.
Network Topology focuses on the general concepts associated with
  1. Oracle networking,
  2. Oracle's network interface, Oracle Net, was formerly known as 1) Net8 when used in Oracle8, and 2) SQL*Net when used with Oracle7, which are legacy versions of Oracle.
    You can use Oracle Net over a wide variety of network protocols, although TCP/IP is by far the most common protocol today. Features associated with Oracle Net, such as shared servers, are referred to as Oracle Net Services.
  3. client- and server-side configuration.

The second course, Network Configuration Management, delves into the technical details of configuring and using many of Oracle Net's components, including
  1. Oracle Names,
  2. the Oracle Enterprise Manager,
  3. the Shared Server, and
  4. the Connection Manager.
In addition, Network Configuration Management covers security and troubleshooting in the network environment.
