I use 255.255.255.255 netmask and it works as expected for me...
do you still see this problem now that you have fixed your libc and
database setup problems?

Also, what do you mean by "it does not work"?  Does it fail to let in
new connections from the intended host, or improperly let in connections
from other hosts?

			regards, tom lane

PS: I assume you've double-checked that the intended host really is
x.y.z.12, and not x.y.z.something-else...
