I am connected to Oracle, using QGIS and can see the vector data table.

I am trying to use the GDAL Raster plugin to view raster data, in QGIS. When I click on the Oracle GeoRaster plugin, get a cannot connect error.

The plugin is installed as shown in the image. GeoRaster Plugin

I have pointed the GDal Raster settings to both paths below. In case that was the issue

C:\Program Files\QGIS 2.16.0\bin\gdalplugins
C:\Program Files\QGIS 2.16.0\apps\qgis\qtplugins

Maybe this is just a problem with your GDAL installation. You may need to do some more checks:

1) Are you able to use GDAL from the command line ? Does the following work ?

gdalinfo --version

2) Does your gdal installation include the proper georaster plugin ? Does it appear in the following list ?

gdalindo --formats

3) Can you check a raster stored in Oracle ? Something like this:

gdalinfo georaster:scott/tiger@localhost:1521/orcl121,us_rasters,georaster

4) Are you able to use GDAL from QGIS for reading other data - like plain files ?
