Rollei Ortho 25, use RLC (Rollei Low Contrast 1+4) a low contrast document developer.
For the Rollei Pan 25 there are several good alternatives:
Rodinal 1+50, AM50 1+29 (a pyrocatechine (non-staining) developer) from Amaloco Photochemicals, the Netherlands or Tetenal Neofin Blau/Blue a simmilar type of developer.
