    Loopback Adapter for a Remote Machine ?

    dassdhan
      Hi all,

      I have installed 11gr2 on a Remote Machine (Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacentre 64-bit) through Remote Desktop Connection.

      Is it necessary to install Loopback Adapter on a Remote Machine (because Machine has a IP Address) ?

      Thanks/Regards.
      Dass.

          No.

          The entire purpose of the loopback adapter is to provide a local fixed ip address on a machine that gets its public ip address from a DHCP server. Commonly used when installing Oracle on a desktop for personal, one-machine use. Putting it on a real server with a real, fixed ip address makes a much sense as a screen door on a submarine.
