This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is more an administration than a coding question:

Oracle connections are based on server-side "listeners" - these can be configured independently of the DB itself and can use any IP/port...

Click here to read how to do that exactly - BTW: it depends on your server+network config (i.e. which OS ? Is the DB on a RAC ? etc.)!

Basically you just need to setup a listener for the DB/instance with the port number you want server-side and then use that in your client-side connection-string / TNSNAMES-config.

For temporary use you can also use Linux iptables NAT Redirect
