Forum OpenACS Development: Accessing PostgreSQL instances remotely and securely
authenticate users - which I find cool.

to have an OS account on the database box, so I don't have to turn on
passwords for the databases, but still require a strong authentication. I
tried a bit with pg_hba.conf, but not yet successfully: authentication worked
with any password.
ident authentication is not possible because the accessing box is using
The only half-secure way to do this: I restricted access to one particular ip
Can I achieve this?
