The Windows Firewall state is On by default to block incoming connections on most TCP network ports. As a result, an Oracle client reports errors when it requires an incoming connection from an Oracle server. You must adjust the Windows Firewall settings after installing Oracle client software to allow exceptions for the needed incoming connections.

If the Windows Firewall state is Off on the Oracle client, then you do not need to change the configuration.

Open the Windows Firewall Control Panel

  1. Open Windows Firewall.

    The Windows Firewall control panel appears.

  2. In Public networks, verify that the Windows Firewall state is On.

  3. In Control Panel Home, click Advanced settings.

    The Windows Firewall with Advanced Security management console appears.

    The default Oracle listener port is 1521. Your network configuration might require a different port number.

  6. On the Action page, select Allow the connection and then click Next.

  7. On the Profile page, select the needed options for Domain, Private, and Public, as required by your network configuration and allowed by the security policy of your company. Click Next.
