I just found this project and I downloaded Turkey PostgreSQL iso image. Then I installed it into my Virtualbox machine (OS: Windows Vista)and it installed successfully. The problem is when I tried to connect to it from my laptop, for example using putty the connection rejected. What shall I do? Thanks

Check networking

By default VBox uses NAT. Its fine for outgoing connections but no good for incoming ones (unless you set up port forwarding). If yoiu change it Bridged it should work (you may need to power off first).
