I am trying to connect using ip:port, not odbc
 
 

Actually pgAdmin uses the ODBC driver to make the connection, you just don't
see that! The error you are getting does mean exactly what it says - it
can't connect to the server. Some things to check:
 
1) Can you ping your server using the hostname/ip address that you are
specifying in the pgAdmin logon dialogue?
 
2) Is the postmaster really running on the tcp/ip port specified in the
pgAdmin logon dialogue - make sure either the relevant option is set in your
postgresql.conf file in $PGDATA, or that the postmaster was started with the
-i option. Netstat will show the default domain socket as well as the tcp/ip
socket - don't get them confused :-)
 
3) Does $PGDATA/pg_hba.conf on you server allow access to the template1
database from your client PC?
 
Please let me know if this fixes your problem.
 
Regards, Dave.
