I've been watching this thread because I am experience exactly the same
thing. I can also repeat all the diagnostic results of Conni. Postmaster
resides on a Win 2K box. I can telnet to the server no problem. My pg_hba

Connection to the postmaster on the local machine works just fine, but I
just cannot get it to connect remotely.
