    You'll be able to find the port in use by examining the relevant entry for that server in the tnsnames.ora file.

    Your proposal is risky because:

    - you'd be exposing the database server to the Internet, meaning it will be very insecure
    - if the database is across the WAN from your application server then the performance may well be quite poor

    You'd be better putting the application server in a DMZ attached to the DB server's network, thus protecting the Oracle server and improving bandwidth between the two servers.

    We will be netting the internal IP address with and external IP via IR
    It will be having a different IP address internally and externally.
