It's helpful to post error messages you receive rather than simply saying
it doesn't run.

The most likely problem is that you're not running the postmaster or
pg_ctl program w/TCP connections enabled. As a security precaution,
they're
disabled by default.

Either:

(a) add -o "-i" to your postmaster or pg_ctl command (for occasional TCP
use depending on startup)

or

(b) edit postgresql.conf to set tcpip_socket = true

HTH,
