Yes. You can assign a different port to one of the two listeners. If you want the
Oracle access but not the WebDb front end, then use OAS. The Oracle security can be removed by making your webdb site public so the public DAD (which logs in automatically) sees all of it. The the asp can control security, then you still
have db access.

You could also run OAS under IIS which would both asp and db access but wouldn't restrict the user interface.

The down side of not using Oracle security is that a shortcut could jump directly
into your webdb site without a password. I've been looking for the login and logout
logic in webdb and can't seem to find it.
