Step 2 of 6. Connect to PostgreSQL Server

This wizard screen collects information to connect to PostgreSQL server. The SQL Server to PostgreSQL converter is able to connect to both local and remote PostgreSQL servers.

By default the program uses local connection mode. It is indicated by radio button "Local" selected. To remote connection select "Remote" radio button, specify the host (network name or IP address) and the port. The port value is necessary only if it differs from the default PostgreSQL port number 5432. Otherwise you may leave this field as is.

Enter user name and password or leave these fields blank for anonymous connection.

By default PostgreSQL server connects to database with the same name as the username unless another database is specified directly. Custom PostgreSQL database may be also specified on this wizard page.
