I've done this before, not recently. But I'm not sure about your
firewall issues. Does your Libre Office come with the unoconv tool? 

I think org-mode has an option for this, but it may be using unoconv in
the background. From

http://orgmode.org/manual/Extending-ODT-export.html#x-export-to-other-formats

we discover the variable org-odt-preferred-output-format. 

With that info, I can search my archive file and I find this

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-odt-preferred-output-format "odt"
      org-export-odt-prettify-xml nil 
      org-export-odt-styles-file OrgOdtStyles.xml 
      org-odt-data-dir "/e/emacs-config/"
      org-odt-styles-dir "/e/emacs-config/styles/")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You probably only need the first line, with "docx" instead, but I
include the other lines in case it gives you ideas.
