Amis has a good post on debugging client side SQL*Net

Although this is not strictly an Oracle security post I was very interested to read Marco Gralike's excellent post to the Amis blog titled "Small introduction to SQL*Net debugging [client side]". This paper shows a good set of checks that can be used to test why a SQL*Net connection does not work. What has it got to do with security? - well if you want to secure your database understanding at various levels what makes network connections to it tick is worthwhile.
