Seems pretty strange for two romanians speaking english on the
PostgreSQL interfaces list in order to help each other :-) but ...

If everything is ok (match for PostgreSQL backend + Tcl/Tk version +
DLL's) then my first thought is :

do you have the same IP address on the win95 as for Linux?

Second idea: give full access for the whole class with trust to all
databases on the PostgreSQL server in order to check if it works!

Then ... (write directly to me teo(at)flex(dot)ro) :-)
