On your windows machine, if you telnet to your server on port 5432, then
hit return a couple of times, what do you see? It should be something
like the following:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>telnet postgresql 5432

Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

EFATAL:  invalid length of startup packet
 Connection closed by foreign host.

Regards, Dave.
