TCP/IP Connection Error

P: 2
Hi all,

II am facing some problem in connecting the DB from non-local systems.
I am using Windows Xp and PostGre SQl 7.3.6.

I have made " tcpip_socket" to "true" in the postgresql.conf file.
But still it is giving error while connecting from non-local system.
In the local system, where the DB is installed; it is successfully connecting to the DB.

So please tell me how to solve tgis issue.

Expecting reply at ur earliest convenience

Thanking you

You did not give enough info to make any meaningful recommendation.
Do you have the "port = XXX" line in postgresql.conf?
Are you getting any specific error when trying to connect?
What are the command line arguments you use to start postmaster?
Do you have any PG-variables set when you're starting the server?
(PGHOST, PGPORT, etc)

And what I forgot to mention is this could be just a firewall issue.
