Hi, This is error is coming to you bcoz you have given IDENT as the authentication type in your pg_hba.conf file. Check out this file, whether you have enabled "IDENT" as your auth type. If so configure appropriately users for IDENT authentication.
For simplicity and for testing purpose, you can just give "trust" for localhost and try whether you are able to connect to postgresql or not. -S.
