Quoth the FAQ_NT:

: By default, PostgreSQL clients like psql communicate using unix domain
: sockets, which don't work on NT.  Start the postmaster with -i, and
: when connecting to the database from a client, set the PGHOST
: environment variable to 'localhost' or supply the hostname on the
: command line.
