It is *extremely* dangerous to expose your DB server on the
Internet. Please modify your working policy, otherwise you may get
yourself in HUGE troubles with hackers.

As to the question, the simplest and safest way I see to solve the
issue is to make a server app which will listen on a port and when
receives the SQL query executes it and then sends back the results.
