That is "iSQLplus", not sqlplus. This is sqlplus:

[mgogala_at_medo ~]$ sqlplus scott/tiger

SQL> Furthermore, lsnrctl is used to start Oracle*Net listener. Listener is not a web server as is "iSQLPlus" server. So called "iSQL*Plus" was a web application, configured in the $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf directory. Standard sqlplus is an awesome CLI tool. If you want a gooey client, try SQL*Developer. I believe that iSQL*Plus is obsolete and abandoned.
