Connect to default PGSQL database remotely

Connect to default PGSQL database remotely

1. To be able to reach the server remotely you have to add the following line into the file: ManageEngine/ServiceDeskPlus-MSP/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf:


listen_addresses = '*'


2. PostgreSQL, by default, refuses all connections it receives from any remote address. You have to relax these rules by adding this line to [ServiceDesk Plus - MSP HOME]/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf:


host all all md5

So, after modifications, it should look like below,

host    all             all               md5

host    all             all                   md5  

This is an access control rule that lets anyone login from any address if a valid password is provided (the md5 keyword). You can use your network/mask instead of to only allow access from certain IP addresses.


3. When you have applied these modifications to your configuration files, you need to restart the PostgreSQL server.


Now, you will be able to login to your server remotely.
