Also, in your postgresql.conf file, be sure you have LISTEN_ADDRESSES set to '*' - for testing, at least.
You sure server is running? What does $ ps -af | grep postgres tell you?
Do you have any useful output in PG's logs? Even a failed attempt, if it's traversing your network, will usually be logged (again, postgresql.conf must be set to log connections)
Can you connect using psql from the _same_ machine, using a socket connection?

Did you allow ip addresses in pg_hba.conf. Perhaps you might need to allow IP's in that file.

Subject: [ADMIN] server not starting
Since I upgraded to 9.1, the server has not been starting. psql works, and pg_ctl status indicates that no server is connected.
If I run the command: sudo -u postgres /user/lib/postgresql/9.1/bin/pg_ctl start -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
it says the server is ready to accept connections.
The command sudo -u postgres /user/lib/postgresql/9.1/bin/pg_ctl status -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
pg_ctl: server is running (PID:1751)
/usr/lib/postgresql/9.1/bin/postgres "-D" "/usr/local/pgsql/data"
However, netstat indicates no connection to port 5432, and I still cannot connect.
I am unable to figure out where the LISTEN_ADDRESSES is assigned, perhaps that is the problem. I am obviously new to administration.
Thanks for any help,
