Well, I am not really able to verify that, as the PgAdmin doesn't connect in the first place. So the connections and authentication is disabled. 
  I think I know that the server is listening at the default port 5432, and I have switched off my windows firewall too, but I am not too sure what I can do next. 
  Any suggestions?

  In should be located under the 

  section of postgresql.conf

  Thanks for the reply. I did a telnet using the server's remote IP, and it worked! So I am assuming now that it is a firewall problem.... But I have turned off the windows firewall from my system, I have tried restarting the system too. No luck! 
  I have changed the pg_hba.conf to have the ip address of my windows machine. I have restarted the postgres server too. I am thinking that really isnt the problem, since my telnet, ping etc. all go through fine. 
  Anything else I can try? Really looking forward to getting around this problem!

  Hi George,

From the server's console, do "telnet 5432."
Make sure to use the server's remote IP, not localhost. If that fails, 
your PostgreSQL is not listening on that port correctly. If it 
succeeds, then you've got a firewall problem.

If it's PostgreSQL isn't listening, make sure you have done a restart 
(not just a reload) since making the chance in your configuration file 
(just to make sure, if you can, stop then start it.) Also check you are 
editing the correct file! (I.e. the one in the same cluster directory 
that PostgreSQL is starting.)
