Hi Everybody,

I am having difficulty connecting to postgres service from
a remote machine on the network.

My postgres (8.3.6, on Linux) is running on a machine
(vixen) and I would like to connect to it from another host.

The host (named blitzen, runs linux as well) appears in
pg_hba.conf of vixen as:
  host     canon   all md5     # blitzen

and when I issue "psql canon" from blitzen, it complains as:
  psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
        Is the server running locally and accepting
        connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?

I think the complaint means that blitzen is not running

The host id of server (vixen) is 107 and I have no problem
ssh'ing from blitzen:

  [tsakai(at)blitzen Gallo]$ nslookup vixen

  Non-authoritative answer:

  [tsakai(at)blitzen Gallo]$ ssh -l tsakai
  Last login: Fri Apr 10 12:16:57 2009 from
  [tsakai(at)vixen ~]$

How can I get a response from postmaster via psql from a
client machine?  I would appreciate any help.  Thank you.
