Re: im having trouble connecting to my postgresql server remotely

Hi Titus,

A bit late to answer this question but I see it's still open, so here you go:

Your postgresql.conf looks fine, it has:

listen_addresses = '*'

port = 5432

The problem is your host based authentication file pg_hba.conf. Until now you are only allowing connections from local host. Let's say your database is named: alfrescodb, and your user is alfresco. And imagine you are connecting from 10.9.0.42, then, you need to add the following line:

host    alfrescodb   alfresco   10.9.0.42/32   md5

And remove this line at the end:

host all     all         127.0.0.1/32                 password

Avoid using the 'password' method, as it sends the password on plain text.

I hope it helps
