Parameter

Parameter Description
isnsListeningPort

The IP address that you want to use for the iSNS server listening port. The range of values for the listening port is 49152 to 65535. The default value is 53205.

The listening port resides on the server and performs these activities:

  • Monitors incoming client connection requests
  • Manages traffic to the server

When a client requests a network session with a server, the listener receives the actual request. If the client information matches the listener information, then the listener grants a connection to the database server.

Notes

A listening port resides on the database server and is responsible for these activities:
  • Listening (monitoring) for incoming client connection requests
  • Managing the traffic to the server

When a client requests a network session with a server, a listener receives the actual request. If the client information matches the listener information, then the listener grants a connection to the database server.
