If PostgreSQL won't start with tcpip_socket=true, but can otherwise then 
that suggests it can't open the socket.

That might be because something else is using it, or it might be because 
a firewall won't let you.

If something else is using the socket then by telnet-ing to port 5432 we 
can see what is there.

If you get different results trying to connect from different places 
then that would suggest a firewall is involved.

I'm assuming you have:
  1. Tried stopping and starting manually
  2. checked the logs and there is nothing there
  3. have run netstat and it doesn't show anything useful.

Given that you have done those, we need to start from outside and work in.
