OraDirect.NET - open ports

Post by Apparel21 » Tue 02 Sep 2008 03:58

We are using OraDirect.NET version 4.30.20.0 for our .net projects, and ODAC version 6.00.0.4 for our VCL projects.

In the odac (VCL) version, there is a problem with an extra listening port being opened for OCIEvents which causes problems with the firewall.
This is fixed by setting OCIEvents := False in some initialization code.
(see this forum in the ODAC group...

The OraDirect.NET library also has this problem of opening the extra port. How can I stop this happening ?

Any news on this problem? I have emailed you support directly also on oranet@devart.com, but have not had any response. This is preventing us from releasing our .net products using OraDirect.net . Please help!

The new build of OraDirect .NET includes the solution for this problem. The information about this build is here: http://devart.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12859

To disable the port you should set OracleDependency.Enabled=false
