I start getting the following error after leaving Toad idle with a live connection for some period of time, say 30 minutes, on a WinXP SP1 machine:
- ORA-12151: TNS:received bad packet type from network layer
I’m using Toad Data Point 3.2 and connecting to a remote (off-site) Oracle 11gR1 (188.8.131.52.0) database, using the full 11gR2 (184.108.40.206) client. The same issue occurs when using Toad Data Point 3.3 and I believe I used to see this problem when using Toad for Data Analysts 3.1.
I never see this error when running Toad for Oracle 11.5 against the same database from the same workstation.
Sometimes browsing other tables can clear up the problem. Sometimes it requires a database re-connection. And other times a full application re-start is required.
Can someone from Quest attempt to verify this issue and see about getting it working better in TDP 3.3?
