    POSTGRESQL : parameterized servername in connection string

    Hi all,
    I have just started to explore the wonders of PostgreSql. and my coding environment is VB.NET
    I am experiencing problem in connection to the database. I need to parameterize the connection string based on the server where the pgsql is installed.
    like constring = "Server=<machine_name_as_parm>;
    other parameter values can work well.
    But if change the server parameter to a different computer name, then it throw an error.
    "Unable to read data from transport connection:"

    Even the hardcoaded ip address also failed.
    my sample con string looks like this..
    strString = String.Format("Host={0};Port={1};User Id={2};Password={3};Database={4};", "", "5432", "pguser", "pgpwd", "sampledb")

    (If i change the host parameter to 'localhost' it works well. But if, for some reason, the server machine changed / database shifted to other machine/pgsql then i'll pass the machine name through login screen.)

    Can anybody help in this regard?

    anticipating helpful responses...

    SOLVED: POSTGRESQL : parameterized servername in connection string

    Some googling and found that i had to make an entry in pg_conf.hba to allow all hosts with full access.
    have a look at http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/postgr...onnection.html
