Hi

I have installed PeerDirect native Windows port of
PostgreSQL 7.2.1 on Windows XP professional. I have
set Env variables according to installation
instruction.
I can execute initdb successfully.
I can install the post_svc and I can run postmaster
successfully.

But when I tried to connect database, 
psql template1 
psql: server closed the connection unexpectedly
        This probably means the server terminated
abnormally
        before or while processing the request.

In Server Log:
DEBUG:  database system was shut down at 2003-03-02
00:30:12 Pacific Stan
DEBUG:  checkpoint record is in
pg_xlog/0000000000000000 at offset 2184924
DEBUG:  redo record is at 0/2156DC; undo record is at
0/0; shutdown TRUE
DEBUG:  next transaction id: 541; next oid: 16557
DEBUG:  database system is ready
FATAL 1:  getpeername() failed

When I tried to create new db (createdb), create new
user ( createuser )  I got the exactly the same error,
the same message in Server Log "FATAL 1: 
getpeername() failed".



When I tried to connect with pgAdmin II, I got the
error saying that "unexpected protocol charactor
during authentication". On Server Log it shows the
same message " FATAL 1:  getpeername() failed".

In pgAdminII log file, I can see as follows:
