What OracleXETNSListener service does?

I know it is installed with Oracle (11g Express), but I couldn't find a description.

What I checked:

  • The service description field is empty.
  • Google hits show only problems with the service, not it's purpose
  • No relevant hit on speruser, dba.stackexchange, stackowerflow

I did not find oracle-11g tag, only oracle-10g. – gerleim Jul 23 '14 at 11:02
TNS stands for Transparent Network Substrate. – and31415 Jul 23 '14 at 11:08
It’s basically the main listener for your database instances. – Daniel B Jul 23 '14 at 11:09
remote clients connect to this service/port, in order to connect to and query your databases. – Frank Thomas Jul 23 '14 at 11:25

The service is a TNS service for your Oracle XE instance. Oracle uses TNS as a method of connecting with the Oracle database instance
