In pgAdmin 3, there are choices under the file menu to edit (open) the .pgpass,
pg_hba.conf and postgresql.conf files. That is one of the utilities I tried to
edit these files.
As far as the : "edit the file. postgresql.conf first to enable to the
pg_hba.conf dir" comment.
I was referring to the fact that the error I was getting when trying to connect
from Windows to OSX, that stated that I didn't have a record in the pg_hda.conf
file. In order for this file to be read and used, there is a path and attribute
that needs to be enabled in the 'postgresql.conf' file to use the pg_hba.conf
dir/file. I wasnt sure if there was a certain order that this all needs to be
done in or using which method to edit these files.
The pg_hba.conf file I am editing is on the 'server', the OSX installed version

When I try to connect, i get an error about no entry in the pg_hba.conf for the
ip i am trying to connect to.
I used pgAdmin3 to try to edit the file. postgresql.conf first to enable to the
pg_hba.conf dir and then the pg_hba.conf file.
You have to edit the pg_hba.conf file on the server. I don't know if it
is possible with pgadmin, but i doubt ...
And i don't know what you mean with "edit the file. postgresql.conf
first to enable to the pg_hba.conf dir".
