In putting in the above line did you replace the host line with address 
""? If so, that's probably your problem - it needs the 127* 
line. Is postmaster listening on the default port (5432) or did you 
change that during install? (Can check that in the postgresql.conf file 
in the same place as pg_hba.conf)

How are you trying to connect? (pgAdminIII, some other program using the 
ODBC driver?) What error are you getting?

NB: I get access denied if I put my servers IP address into the 
pg_hba.conf file and comment out the existing 127 address line. Local 
connections would not go out through the network and would thus not be 
seen by PG as coming from your 192/168 address.
