Hi, Again we've tried to use the connect string that you told us but still it fails. We've tried using postgres on the same machine and it connects but when we use postgres of the remote machine it fails what are the other options? and is there any permission that i must set on the remote postgreSQL? the error is (could not connect to any SQL databases. Request is ignored). === Archive at http://www.thesite.com.au/~radiator/ To unsubscribe, email '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' with 'unsubscribe radiator' in the body of the message.
