Yes, you need to have postgresql available either locally or via a
network.  I don't know if it can access via ODBC, however, as it needs to
know about the ODBC interface and I don't think pgAccess does.  You might
be better off using pgAdmin under Windows (which does use the ODBC
interface) and use pgAccess under whatever Unix-ish environment you use.
