I get a connection timeouts when I am connected to the database via
TOAD and also using Putty and SQLPlus (the operating system on the
client is XP) after some hours.
I think this occurred after checking the system for vulnarabilities
according to the Oracle warning this spring. I don't recall the
document anymore.
Before I was connected to the database undefinitely.

I checked the profiles on the database and the sqlnet.ora file on the
I found no entries that would set timeout, idle_time or somthing like

Somebody has clue what could lead to my timeouts?
