"How do I... Use pgAdmin II via a secure (encrypted) connection?"
(http://pgadmin.postgresql.org/pgadmin2/pgadmin2.php?ContentID=11) is an
I am using the same set-up for mysql for months without a problem.
To get this also working with postgres, I tried many approaches with no
success, but then, I noticed that
1) even on the server on which postmaster/the database is running, I get
<<[root(at)calimero data]# psql -h localhost -p 5432 -U myUserId myDB
psql: could not connect to server: Connection refused
Is the server running on host localhost and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 5432?>>
so, perhaps, something needs to be changed on the server side first?
2) secondly, Fred says to enhance pg_hba.conf, but he doesn't hint how to
get that additional IP address:
Especially since more and more db-servers are behind firewalls and NATed,
this is not so trivial.
My finding so far is that "/sbin/ifconfig" provides this additional
IP-address that is not visible to the outside.
Anyway, any hints how to solve 1) would be highly appreciated!
