[postgis-users] connecting to postgis from remote machines

I am able to connect to postgis on a local machine, however I am having trouble connecting to PostGIS from remote machines.  The specific error I get is "FATAL: no_pg.conf entry for host "10.0.xxx.xxx", user "Editor", database "postgis20", SSL off."  I modified postgresql.conf so that the listen_addresses  is set to *, and made sure that ssl is set to off.  In addition I added a line in pg_hba.conf  for type host, database all, user all, IP-address *.  

1)  I was not clear what to use for the method in pg_hba.conf.  I set it to md5 as that is what the other methods are using.
2) For testing I am using qgis 1.8.0 on a 32 bit machine to connect to postgis on a 64 bit machine.  Are there any known issues with connecting to 64 bit host from a 32 bit machine?

Thank You
