SQLnet.ora specifies the order of naming methods that are used when a client tries to connect to a database.
To this it could be also used for other purposes like:
1. To identify the method of connection from client to host
2. To bypass the network layer
3. To check if the client is active within certain intervals
If sqlnet.ora file is not available, then certain default values are taken into consideration.
