Listener on tcp/1626. Why?

Pardon the ignorance.
 
I understand sockets, port assignments and the like. I am stumped however with Oracle's implementation of a listener on 2 distinct ports (1521 and 1626) on a common host. Can someone provide some insight for me.
 
TIA

Hi,
 
Oracle generally sets the listener port as a default to 1521 or 1526 (not 1626) and by default the listener is listening on one port only. Although it is possible to enable the listener on multiple ports to acheive load balancing. You can also reset the default port to any non default number.  
 
Why do you ask? - have you actually got the listener running on these two ports?
 
cheers

One possibility is that 1521 and 1626 are the default ports for an Oracle E-Business Suite implementation.  The 1521 is the database listener and 1626 is the batch processing listener (concurrent manager).

Thanks for your reply Steve, If E-Business Suite were installed the OP should be able to confirm this and let us all know.  
 
Thanks
