 IMHO it is not good idea to go to OpenVPN/IPSec/etc level at all (IP

 First of all OpenVPN for Windows/different OS sometimes become a 
 headache and need admin privileges.

 If you have just SQL queries and one TCP port to database - just use 
 stunnel.
 Maybe even easier, if it is custom application, to embed TLS directly 
 to application, and you can still run nice certificate authorization 
 (same TLS), and it will be much more transparent for user.
