Oops u have lots of question.May be I can help u by sort of information beacuse I run Oracle9i and form9i both in LAN and Internet
# Oracle 9i is a totaly Internet based database system
# First setup oracle9i in ur server and after taht install Oracle
# Now To run the form u have to run a service named "OC4J start"
from program menu on Form9i.
# Now the virtual directory concept.If u setup Oarcle Form9i as
"c:\Forms9" then u will find a "c:\forms9\Bin" this "Bin" directory
is as virtual direcory.You just save forms in this directory.
#LAN: Running from a client in Lan just open a Internet browser
if server Ip :192.168.0.1
and a emp.fmx file in "c:\forms9\Bin"
and type like -- "http://192.168.0.1:8080/emp.fmx"
U will get ur Form. [Note: Probably a softawre Jiniatator can be
requested for setup just setup it.It will do automatically]
#Internet: I tried it using a public IP of the server .Suppose ur
server ip: 22.214.171.124
Just Be connected on internet and open a browser
Remebmer: Must Run the "OC4J Start" service for running form.
