Unable to set up or access Postgres on Wireless LAN

P: 1
Getting frustrated trying to set up Postgresql on a LAN. I made sure the listen_addresses = '*' is in the postgresql.conf file, and added the following line in the pg_hba.conf file:

host all all trust

Yet, whenever I try to connect from another computer on the wireless LAN, either via PG Admin, or ODBC driver, I get a messsage 'Failed to connect, make sure the server is listening .... etc.'

Appreciate any help you can provide.

The easiest way to check if you can access the port at all is to telnet to it, e.g:

telnet you_server_ip 5432

(I'm assuming your postgres server listens on port 5432). The failure to connect has nothing to do with pg_hba (authentication part).
Check your firewall as well.
