    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 over the network.
    I need to parameterize the connection string based on the server where the pgsql is installed.

    like constring = "Server=<machine_name_as_param>;
    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")

    (My intension is, if in any case the database migrated to a different machine, i can pass the server_machine_name/ip thro login form, and use the same as a parameter to connect to postgres in that machine over network)

    Can anybody help in this regard?

    anticipating helpful responses...

    Solved : 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, which allows remote connection to postgres.
