By default, PostgreSQL initially installs with fairly tight security settings, including only letting the machine where you've installed it access the DB. You will need to modify the pg_hba.conf file to allow other IP addresses addess the database. If you open that file, there's some good comments on what you need to do.
Hope this helps...
