    Aside from all of the other suggestions you've gotten, I'll make the assumption your on 8.X or 8i as that's where this does come into it's own. At the start of Oracle8 protocol.ora and the interchanges died so that suggestion will not work and creating a trusted domain with it's own firewall can be expensive, but with Oracle 8.0 and beyond came Connection Manager which is not really hard to configure (cman.ora) in it's "firewall mode" where it allows or denys access to the database based on ip addresses or parts thereof. It works too, did it to myself by accident.

Hi All,

I would like to restrict a user from logging on to the database if he/she comes from an unknown IP address.
Can this be done??


Webserver with fixed IP-Address.
People log on to the webserver which than spawns a proces that logs on to the database using a username/password with lots of privileges to retrieve the data requested by the user.
I would not want anybody to use this username from any other machine except this one webserver.

TIA Jack
