To install Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM), you will need to establish a secure network connection to Oracle. Based on your corporate networking policies, you may be able to make a direct connection to Oracle via the Internet or you may be able to access Oracle (and the Internet) via a proxy server. OCM supports both methods.
OCM uses the features of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and make use of HTTPS for all communications

1. Direct access to the Internet

OCM initiates communication with Oracle using HTTPS. If you have direct connectivity to the Internet from your machine, no additional configuration is required. OCM will contact on Port 443.

2. Access via a Proxy Server to the Internet

If a proxy server is used to connect to the Internet, the proxy connection details must be supplied to OCM as part of the installation procedure.
One potential way of determining these parameters is looking at your local Internet Browser for the settings it is using.
This may or may-not be the same for the Sever you are configuring for OCM.
To view this in Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Lan Settings>Advanced.

All communications with Oracle is directed to on port 443
