          You need to set this on the database server. Its a listener setup parameter.
          From Oracle documentation:

          SET INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT
          Purpose

          Use the SET INBUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT command to specify the time, in seconds, for the client to complete its connect request to the listener after the network connection had been established.

          If the listener does not receive the client request in the time specified, then it terminates the connection. In addition, the listener logs the IP address of the client and an ORA-12525:TNS: listener has not received client's request in time allowed error message to the listener.log file.

          Oracle Database Net Services Administrator's Guidefor information about specifying the time-out for client connections


          Syntax

          From the Listener Control utility:

          LSNRCTL> SET INCOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT
          Arguments

          {time}: Specify the time, in seconds. Default setting is 60 seconds.

          Example

          LSNRCTL> SET INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT 2
          Connecting to (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=sales-server)(PORT=1521))
          LISTENER parameter "inbound_connect_timeout" set to 2
          The command completed successfully.

              As given in my previous post

              you have to do it from LSNRCTL prompt..(you need run LSNRCTL.exe from command prompt)

              LSNRCTL> SET INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT 2

                  Key word 2 is seconds :

                  Set both parameters to an initial low value.
                  Set the value of the INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_listener_name parameter to a lower value than the SQLNET.INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT parameter.
                  For example, you can set INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_listener_name to 2 seconds and INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT parameter to 3 seconds. If clients are unable to complete connections within the specified time due to system or network delays that are normal for the particular environment, then increment the time as needed.

                  See Also:
                  Oracle9i Net Services Administrator's Guide for information about configuring these parameters

                  Default
                  None

                  Example
                  SQLNET.INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT=3

                    you can put INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT in sqlnet.ora and bounce the listener or just reload.

                      Ananp,
                      From few repies above,
                      LSNRCTL> SET INCOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT
                      Arguments

                      {time}: Specify the time, in seconds. Default setting is 60 seconds.


                      The 2 means 2 seconds.
                      Aman....

                        Be careful that this command doesn't set the parameter permanently and only in the session.
                        You need to put in listener.ora the value like INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_listenername=x where x is the number of seconds you wish to assign.
                        PS: sorry if I'm late with this but it's a good point :)

                          i have added the line INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT in my listener.ora and bounce the listener.
                          The problem i'm having is i dont see that value when i checked

                          LSNRCTL> show INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT --- it show the old value

                          Any suggestion

                            LSNRCTL reload
                            should do the trick :-)

                            Had success eliminating timeout problemes by setting INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_listener= 2 and INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT=3

                            Cheers!
