I installed postgresql on a server which I connect to via VPN. When I try to connect to the database server(from my local pgAdmin III), I get the message, that I am missing the right to access postgresql.

What settings do I have to change in order to be able to connect?

Post the exact error message. – Jeffery Smith Nov 14 '11 at 15:44

It depends on your vpn-setup. If you're using routing rather than bridging, you need to allow access for your IP or for your net to access the DB. See for an explanation.
