I have Postgresql set up on RedHat 6.1, and I can access it with jdbc or
pgaccess locally, and with pgaccess from another linux box on the same
local net.  However, I can't get a connection with jdbc across the net.
The relevant code is

  public static void main (String[] args) {
    try {
      Connection con =
          "collins", "");
      // Do something useful here
      Statement stmt = con.createStatement();

and the error message is

Connection refused. Check that the hostname and port is correct, and
that the postmaster is running with the -i flag, which enables TCP/IP
 at postgresql.Connection.openConnection(, Compiled Code)

 at postgresql.Driver.connect(, Compiled Code)
 at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(, Compiled

Here's what I've checked:
 - postmaster is indeed being run with the -i flag.  I think neither the
local jdbc or the remote pgaccess would work otherwise.  Here's the line
from rc.d/init.d/postgres:
       su -l postgres -c '/usr/bin/postmaster -i -S -D/var/lib/pgsql'
 - I've used every name I can think of, including the ip address, in the
URL above.  I've used the port and I've not used the port.
 - I've used netstat to check that postmaster is indeed listening on

I'm stumped.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
