From the documentation:"psql: could not connect to server: Connection refused
        Is the server running on host and accepting
        TCP/IP connections on port 5432?This is the generic "I couldn't find a server to talk to" failure. It looks like the above when TCP/IP communication is attempted. A common mistake is to forget the -i option to allow the postmaster to accept TCP/IP connections. "

  After finally getting pgsql to operate in basic mode, I've hit a snag with pgAdmin3:

  **Error connecting to the server: could not connect to the server: Connection was refused (0x0000274D/10061) 

  Is the server running on host "" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?**

  Does pgAdmin still require that I install a seperate odbc program?  If so, where do I get it?

  Do I need to assign the environment variables like PGDATA and PGHOST?
