Hi LIst;

I have 2 Linux servers:
192.168.111.11
192.168.111.13

Both are running postgres v 8.2.6

I can ping the .11 box from .13 and vice versa
I can connect remotely from the .11 box to the .13 box but I cannot  
connect to the .11 box from the .13 box.

I can do this:

on the 192.168.111.11 box:

-bash-3.1$   psql -h 192.168.111.13
Welcome to psql 8.2.6, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type:  \copyright for distribution terms
        \h for help with SQL commands
        \? for help with psql commands
        \g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
        \q to quit

postgres=#

However if I do this it fails:

on the 192.168.111.13 box:

-bash-3.1$   psql -h 192.168.111.11 postgres
psql: could not connect to server: No route to host
         Is the server running on host "192.168.111.11" and accepting
         TCP/IP connections on port 5432?



Both boxes have the same copy of the postgresql.conf file and the  
pg_hba.conf file.

Here's the listen address setting (on the 192.168.111.11 box) from the  
postgresql.conf file:
listen_addresses = '*'


I also checked (after a restart) that the listen address and port was  
in fact as I thought
on 192.168.111.11 :

postgres=# show listen_addresses;
  listen_addresses

  *
(1 row)

postgres=# show port
;
  port

(1 row)

postgres=#


Here's the current pg_hba.conf file on 192.168.111.11 :



# TYPE  DATABASE    USER        CIDR-ADDRESS          METHOD

# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all         all                               ident sameuser
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all         all         127.0.0.1/32          ident sameuser
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all         all         ::1/128               ident sameuser

#DRW.  This should be tighted up once the db instances are figured out
host    all         all         192.168.111.0/24              trust



I'm stumped..

Anyone have any thoughts ?

Thanks in advance.
