I'm going to apologise in advance as I know you must have been through this a thousand times already... however...
I am setting up my desktop pc to connect to my laptop Poker Tracker database. This is not something new... I have done it in the past, though the last time I needed to set it up was about a year and a half ago. This time, when I am trying to connect to my laptop (server) I am being prompted with "This server is not responding to connection attempts. Please restart the PostgreSQL service, then PokerTracker and try again."
On my server I appear to have two directories (installations?) within the Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL directory.... 8.3 and 8.4
The 8.3 directory only contains one folder called Data, and within this many subdirectories.
The 8.4 directory contains many subdirectories, so I assume this is the version PokerTracker is trying to connect to...
Within my postgressql.conf file (in both 8.3 and 8.4 directory) I have the line: listen_addresses = '*'
This is the configuration of the pg_hba.conf file (again, in both 8.3 and 8.4):
host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5
host all all ::1/128 md5
host all all 192.168.0.0/24 md5
I have disabled my firewall temporarily so I know that this is not blocking any connection.
The only changes I have made since previously successfully networking PokerTracker previously are:
1) I switched from Virgin Broadband to Sky Broadband - this changed my ipconfig so I needed to update the line 192.168.1.0/24 to 192.168.0.0/24
2) I installed HoldemManager (I presume this is why I have 2 versions of Postgres?) - Don't worry I have since removed HoldemManager... it sucks compared to PokerTracker, but they do support PKR (albeit badly...!)....
So, I am kinda lost as to where to go from here??? Any advise??? Uninstall and reinstall postgres??
Apologies, and thank you in advance for your help.
