Connect to Oracle Express Edition from Remote Machine

For development purposes and small applications I prefer using Oracle Database 10g Express Edition instead of the heavyweight Oracle Database 10g / 11g Enterprise. It can be installed and run for just 2-3 minutes but it has a small problem: by default the TNS Listener listens for connections on port 1521 from the local machine only and thus remote clients can not connect. A quick fix for this issue is to edit the LISTENER.ORA file located typically in here:


You should change the socket bind address to The LISTENER configuration should look like this:

      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = = 1521))

  1. Google Earth is an interactive application that allows users to fly the entire
    globe. For Facebook, the average user is logged in or active about 8
    to 10 hours a month. Google allows you to utilize as much as 10 pictures and I motivate you to utilize each 1 of them.
