Question

How can I configure "Trusted Sources" for my postgres cluster to accept connections from my linux PC?

Hi! I’ve tried appending every IP I could find(hostname -I, curl ifconfig.io etc. - all the same) but I can only connect to my database if I disable the trusted sources list what I don’t want to do.

Hi @alexdo! I’ve managed to connect to the database when I used Mullvad VPN. It seems like I can’t connect with a Hungarian IP.

Hi @alexdo! I’ve tried adding my IP again to the firewall but it still doesn’t work. I haven’t tried it on a different network because I only have net from one ISP at home.

Hi @alexdo! With the firewall disabled, I’m able to the database with the host/port/db/user/password/ssl-cert settings with DBeaver, node.js and psql. Example for the latter: psql -U doadmin -h HOST -p 25060 -d DB --set=sslmode=require --set=sslrootcert=ca-certificate.crt
