We are getting lots of requests from our trainees, as they are unable to get the Public IP of the Database, so I thought of creating a blog post for the same.
In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Database is divided into two types:

Enter the Public IP Address in the Hostname, then add the SSH Private key under SSH & then Auth. Click on Open.
Well, that was all on How to Create & Connect Windows/Linux machine on Oracle Cloud (OCI).
