I noticed that your connection string hast a colon after the Host value:
Host: oracle1dp.gavilon.com:1535; SID=oracle11p; Direct=true; User ID=roUser; Password=xxxxx;
You should try:
Host=oracle1dp.gavilon.com; SID=oracle11p; Direct=true; User ID=roUser; Password=xxxxx;
Also, try the connection string that provided as well:
User ID=xx;Password=xxx;Host=oracle1dp.gavilon.com;SID=oracle11p;Pooling=false;Min Pool Size=0;Max Pool Size=100;Connection Lifetime=0;Direct=true;
Another approach is to install a sample Oracle database and get it working with qSIListView. I created two short videos that show how to do this:

If you download and install the Oracle Express Edition database, create and test a new System using the QWP SI configuraton and then configure a qSIListView to retrieve sample data, that will isolate the issue. You can then test Oracle client connectivity to your Oracle instance via the TNSPING utility:

If you still can not connect, we can setup a live meeting to resolve the issue. I think you will find the time and effort will be worth it once this issue is resolved and the SI web parts are able to show off their capabilities.
