Did you read the cygserver README?  Specifically, about setting
CYGWIN=server on the client side?  Did you install and start the
cygserver service?

IIRC, you may need to tweak some of the settings in the postgresql.conf
file.  This will be clearly documented in my README when I release a
Cygwin PostgreSQL built against cygserver.  Note that I am waiting for
Cygwin 1.5.8 before doing so.
