Did you download Oracle XE before Oracle acquired Bea or after ? (sorry, could not resist ;-)
There are some errors possible related to the "Connection refused" , so the full error message could be helpful

grep -i "connection refused" oraus.msg

00115, 00000, "connection refused; dispatcher connection table is full"
00125, 00000, "connection refused; invalid presentation"
00126, 00000, "connection refused; invalid duplicity"
12564, 00000, "TNS:connection refused"

I would rather suggest, you have not properly configured your connection pool, Oracle XE is restricted in regard resource utilization and some advanced Oracle features (like partitioning) - but the core functionality is the same as by Oracle 10g EE, network connectivity is part of core functionality (imho).

Best regards
