Chris,

Environment:
Server OS MS Windows 2003 R2 SP2 32 bit
Oracle 10g R2 Standard Edition, 10.2.0.4 patchset, 32 bit.
No one-off patches.

sqlnet.ora for the server:
sqlnet.expire_time=1

This in fact does enable the timer functionality for dead connection
detection.
It does not work for values such as sqlnet.expire_time=10 that is referred
to in the metalink documentation.

If you set the trc_level = support you will be able to observe the timer
being set in the trace file.

Do you have the 10.2.0.4 patchset in place on the database server on the
ORACLE_HOME of interest, including the ORACLE_HOME for the listener, if it
runs out of a different home than the database instance of interest?

hth.

Paul
