A.Connecting postgresql locally using port
Please identify port in postgresql.conf under /opt/edb/as9.6/data and connect using psql
There are pre-requisites for allowing local connection.This pg_hba.conf file is under /opt/edb/as9.6/data.Please make sure last parameter should be md5 not peer.
The below content is for example what should be in pg_hba.conf
# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only local all all md5 # IPv4 local connections: host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5 cd /opt/edb/as9.6/bin -bash-4.1$ ./psql -p 5444 edb enterprisedb psql.bin (184.108.40.206) Type "help" for help.

B.Allowing remote connections
As a super user, open
/var/lib/pgsql/9.6/data/pg_hba.conf(Red Hat) in a text editor.
Scroll down to the line that describes local socket connections. It may look like this:
local all all peer
host all all 0.0.0.0/0 trust
Save and close the file.
In the same directory, open
Under the section on Connection Settings, add or replace the line that starts with
listen_addresses to respond to all requests:
listen_addresses = '*' Please restart postgresql service now.
C.Use psql command from client system as follows(Before that you need to setup pg_hba.conf as above to allow remote connection)
psql -h PostgreSQL-IP-ADDRESS -U USERNAME -d DATABASENAME
Connect to remote server by IP address 192.168.1.5 and login using debasis user to connect to edb database, use:
$ psql -h 192.168.1.5 -U debasis -d edb
- -h 192.168.1.5 : Specifies the host name of the machine or IP address (192.168.1.5) on which the server is running.
- -U debasis : Connect to the database as the debasis username instead of the default. You must have account and permission to connect as debasis user.
- -d edb : Specifies the name of the database (edb) to connect to.
D.Connect to edb sql
-bash-4.1$ ./edb-psql edb
Type “help” for help.
Here edb is database name.
