Our database has been put behind a firewall that cuts of inactive connections after 1 hour.
Do you have an idea what I can do to counter this? Is there some kind of keepalive parameter that I can put on the server configuration?
This thread is in the wrong forum, this has nothing to do with Oracle Firewall
but SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME might help:
There are some parameters that can be implemented to have the keep alive, these parameters are to be implemented , Below some documents that will guide you on configuration:
