By editing postgresql.conf and changing listen_address = ‘*’ and editing pg_hba.conf and adding host all all my.ip.address allowed me to connect to the postgresql data base with Microsoft access.

In access I can see the table and it fields, but if I try to use the table in a querry or view the table I get an error: permission denied for relation summer_finaid; error while executing the query (#7)

Any ideas?

Also in the postgresql instead of listen_address=’*’ I tried listen_address=’localhost, my.ip.address’ but that failed to work.
How can I keep local host and only allow specific address? I don’t want to open it up to all with ‘*’

    That's a vintage 02-Feb-2006 driver.

     I use 8.04 from Dec-2009 and even that's getting a little stale.  Why not try the 9.n drivers.

     Could the port(s) be blocked / restricted between you and the server and is PostgreSQL SSL support enabled --

Before learning there was an odbc list, I sent this post to the admin list.

I am running postgres on a red hat linux server.

User on windows computers would like to odbc to the postgres databases.
I downloaded the windows postgres odbc drivers from the following site and installed version “psqlodbc-08_01_0200” on the windows computer.

When I configure a “File Data Source” connection in access, I cannot connect to the postgresql database. I get the message, “A connection could not be made using the file data source parameters entered. Save non-verified file DSN?”
The parameters entered are:
Database: database_name
Server: I entered the IP address of the server
User Name: I entered postgres
SSL Mode: prefer
Port: 5432 (which is the port used by postgres)

Do I need to configure the /etc/odbc.ini file? It is currently just a blank file.

Thanks for any help.
