I could able to create to create user, but while try to connect, I got the following error message

My pg_hba.conf file looks like below

# TYPE  DATABASE    USER        IP-ADDRESS        IP-MASK           METHOD

local   all         all                                             trust
host all     all  192.168.2.0   255.255.255.0     trust
