If postgres has ssl enabled then it will by default negotiate to use ssl,
regardless of the host or hostssl settings in pg_hba. Your client software
needs to refuse ssl connections then it will fall back to a non-ssl
connection so long as there exists a host setting in pg_hba. The hostssl
setting in pg_hba means that it must use ssl to connect, where as the host
setting in pg_hba can mean either or, depending on your client.

What client software are you using?
