Default Connecting Remote Oracle through PHP5

I have PHP5 installed with OCI8 enabled. I need to connect to the remote Oracle server from my web server running Apache on Linux

There is a Firewall(accessible through the internet) at the Oracle Server and it has an IP xxx.xx.xx.x

The Oracle database server is behind the firewall within the internal networl and has IP(internal) address yyyy.yy.yy.y

Oracle is at port 1521

Can anyone tell me how to connect to the remote database server? Is there any more information required to connect to Oracle?

You are going to require a virtual IP on the firewall that masks the Oracle Server's internal IP, otherwise you will not be able to connect to it.

Have fun,
