Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if it is possible to use tnsping programmatically in order to check if Oracle server is available... I've been asked not to continuosly try connection and disconnection in order to save network/system resources.

I will be using DotNet 2.0SP1 but any clue is welcome.

Thanx in advance
