Hi Mark, 

Is good don't do that for security reasons. You can put manually the IP that you want to be connect to your DB on pg_hba.conf - IPV4 like this:

host all all xxx.xxx.x.xxx/32 Trust

For the version Postgresql 8 or 7 you have to complement this action. After this restart the DB.

Best Regards,
Jose Santos
