Wait! I tried to re-execute the code and right now (midnight CEST) the remote database is not accessible:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-04052: error occurred when looking up remote object <edit>

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 2
ORA-12541: TNS:no listener
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2251
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2457
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2426
ORA-06512: at line 2

I suppose they run a cold backup or some other maintenance task now ... :) I hope that Phil (firewall timeout) and Paul (expire_time = 1) are right, there could be another, somehow more "aggressive" firewall on the remote side.

I'll try again tomorrow and let you know.

Thanks again!
