Edit /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf and change the line reading 
'tcpip_socket' to both uncomment it and set it to true.  This is a FAQ; see 
the README.rpm-dist in the documentation directory for postgresql (under 
/usr/share/doc).

Rationale: PostgreSQL is more secure with tcpip_socket listening off; the 
PostgreSQL developers long ago (6.3) selected that as the default.  It is 
easy enough to change with the GUC (postgresql.conf) file, since about 7.0.
