That's quite interesting...on the Tru64 machine, it looks like this is completely disabled,

but on the HP-UX machine, my output looks similar to your example.

Joel, regarding the docs, I'll look more carefully, but at a first glance through the installation manual, the only difference looks like for entries in the listener.ora file. I'll check the Solaris documents to see what the difference there is to make sure I'm looking in the right place.

Thanks for the suggestions/comments.
