The “listerner.ora” file contains server side network configuration parameters. It can be found in the “$ORACLE_HOME/network/admin” directory on the server.

Below is the default listener configuration:

Sample listener

      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = myserver.example.com)(PORT = 1521))

    (SID_DESC =
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/
      (SID_NAME = orcl)

lsnrctl commands

Whenever you make changes to the listener.ora file, you must reload the listener. You can even stop and start the listener using lsnrctl utility:

$ lsnrctl stop
$ lsnrctl start
