Did you tell Postgres to accept network connections?  (-i switch on
postmaster command line, or set tcpip_socket true in postgresql.conf;
note you must restart postmaster to make this change effective.)  Keep
in mind also that you will need to change pg_hba.conf to allow such
connections, but it sounds right now like the postmaster isn't listening
on the TCP socket at all.
