can i set database specific access permission in pg_hba.conf ? 
Can you give me some more details. 

My pg_hba.conf setting is : 
local   all         all         trust
host    all         all         127.0.0.1         255.255.255.255   crypt
I disabled all other lines. 

I changed the second line to this :
host    all         all    0.0.0.0      0.0.0.0  trust
Now the psql command passes, but even after removing
all access restrictions, pg_connct() is still failing.

Can you please give some pointers what is going wrong ?
