is the listener configured on localhost or the IP address of server? If you are going to be connecting remotely, I would recommend setting STATIC IP addresses (10.?.?.? or 192.168.?.?) and configuring the listener appropriately.

The other question would be what is your definition of "remotely"? 1) local network
2) internet->your local network?

You would need to understand the security risks with the latter before embarking on that ship... you could get sunk if you are not careful.

If you don't know what you are doing, you should get in touch with a security expert to assist you in properly configuring your network to handle it. Received on Sun May 10 2009 - 17:05:05 CDT
