Can't connect to a remote PostgreSQL server

on 3/3/16, 4:37 AM 1,722 views

When I try to connect to a remote postgresql I get the error

"Is the server running on host " and accepting

TCP/IP connections on port 5432?"

I set "listen_addresses='*' in postgresql.conf

In pg_hba.conf I have the line "host all all md5"

And the openerp-server.conf is configured with:



What am I missing?

I'm using Odoo8 an Postgresql 9.3

Did you restart the PostgreSQL to use those changes? Check for a firewall in the PostgreSQL server that could be block the 5432 port. Check if that it's the IP address of the PostgreSQL server that the Odoo server see. Just a few notes about that

Apreciado Juan, Están bien hermanados ambos servidores, es decir, ¿en el /etc/hosts tienes bien puestas la IP del otro servidor? Saludos cordiales
