Hi everybody,
I have a problem with remote management in pgAdmin III. I have a PostgreSQL Server on a PC(Linux redhat-9) in the LAN and I want mange it through another PC of the same LAN, but when I try to connect at the PostgreSQL Server through pgAdmin III this error is shown me:
ERROR : Error connecting to the server: could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061)
Is the server running on host "" and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

The server is either not running on the host or not accepting connections on, the error message is very precise.
Check listen_addresses in postgresql.conf.

Thanks to you.....

Look in your postgresql.conf file for :-

listen_addresses = 'localhost,'    # what IP interface(s) to listen on;
                                # defaults to localhost, '*' = any
port = 5432

Modify pg_hba.conf file to give required access, see documentation
