This should be a common question but I can't find an answer. I have an,application that users access through a nat, my web hosting server has access to servers with scattered databases. When a client passes a parameter to get some data does it ater at all if the client can access the ip of one of,the db servers.

Where is your app hosted? Is it a web app or on the user's machine? If the former, the users do not need (and shouldn't have) direct database access.
