Many thanks, Kevin.

'*' is a bit too wide for my taste.  I wonder
if it is possible to specify something like
network mask (or range)?  I may be a bit
paranoid, but...

Regards,

You can use hostnames instead of I.P.'s or you can set:

listen_addresses = '*'

Note that just because postgres will listen to all hosts ('*') the actual 
authentication access is controlled by pg_hba.conf
