I have two machines bonny and clide which share a NFS disk
(which contains the postgres binarys)
bonny is running a postgres database 'testdb' on a local disk
using the binarys on the NFS disk (/nfs/postgres/).
If I log into clide and run '/nfs/postgres/bin/psql testdb'
It connects to postgres on bonny and creates a terminal session.
How does it know where to connect and how do I stop it?
I want to run a backup database on clide and don't want any
confusion as to which database I'm working on!.
I've stripped out all references to postgres in the enviroment
and I set listen_addresses = 'localhost' on the database on bonny
which I would assume would prevent external connections.
