How can I test and verify that SQLNet connections are encrypted when
ANO is enabled (i.e., REQUIRED) at the server and SQL client ends? I
am using Oracle 126.96.36.199.0 on Solaris 2.5.1 (using SQLPlus 188.8.131.52.0 to
connect and test).
I tried using Sun's snoop network packet filter program to
catch packets destined to the listener (port 1521) and examine them,
but I do not see any difference (in the packets) with or without the
following 2 lines in my sqlnet.ora file.
SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_SERVER = ACCEPTED
SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_TYPES_SERVER = (DES,DES40,RC4_128,RC4_40,RC4_56)
I am not a seasoned Oracle user or dba, so any help will be much
