Alright, I ran into this yesterday when trying to connect to my postgresql
server, I used my normal rutine of loading up 'bitvise tunnelier: SSH2
TCP/IP connection forwarder' so that I could run a secure connection.
forwarded with the following settings:

On? Yes
Listen IP:
Listen Port: 5432
Destination IP:  localhost
Destination Port 5432

These settings have worked in the past. We took down the upgraded database
(I had used PgAdmin though tunnelier on both the old db and the new one) to
bring up the old one, since one of the databases diddn't make it though the
conversion. Dumped the db on the old copy of PostgreSQL. And then brought
the upgraded PostgreSQL back online and inserted the db in though psql.

Any ideas?

P.S. Below is cut and copied from the Log View on PgAdmin II if that is of
any help.
