Here is an approach.

Have a few lines in the doc describe exactly what is needed.  Something 
like this:

    TCP outgoing
    Port: 4401
    IP Addresses: all
    Protocol:  Proprietary Database Access

If you can narrow it down to a small range of IP address or even one, 
that is better.

The user can take that to the keeper of the firewall.
