Our system administrator came to us today...we currently have a dozen or so
Oracle applications running on servers, connecting to Oracle 7.x databases
using SQL*Net V2 and TCP/IP. A group at the site has purchased a third
party package that requires the use of SPX/IPX instead. Reading the
SQL*Net Administrator's guide, I see that this is possible, but it refers
me to another manual (the multi-protocol administration guide) which I
cannot seem to find. (BIG surprise) Can anyone give me a synopsis of what
has to be done to set this up? From the diagram, it looks like we need two
additional machines --- one to act as a "translator" (so that only one
protocol is heading toward the database server) and one for the additional
protocol. Is this true?
Any info is appreciated.
