This is also possible.

2 ways:
- remote login and run the application remote (like psql)
- Portforwarding, i explain:
  ssh <remote> -L:5432:<ip pg-server>:5432

Now the TCP-Port 5432 on your local System is forwarded to the
PG-Server. You can use arbitrary application on your local host, it
seems the database is running local on your host.

The connection to the pg-server are encapsulated and encrypted through
the ssh-connection. You don't need an open port on the remote side,
except SSH. And your server can be in a LAN behind the gateway with
a private address.



Other solution, as Tom suggested, SSL.
