Basically the current version on  Postgres that comes with Cygwin also seems to have a dependency on the crypt library (it kept falling over with a message about missing dll with a name LIKE '%crypt%' - I guessed on the crypt lib and that seemed to cure it OK. BTW failed to book-mark exactly which page text appears on - ask for full text if you can't identify it from title.

Currently I now have an instance running according to Cygwin - only problem is I can't seem to psql to it from anywhere (tried opening a second Cygwin window and...

$ psql -l
psql: could not connect to server: Connection refused
        Is the server running on host "localhost" and accepting
        TCP/IP connections on port 5432?


Any tips would be appreciated.
