  • Hi,

    If you want to access the shared files on Ubuntu from the Windows 10?

    If yes, that's feasible.

    You just obtain your Ubuntu IP address and file's shared path.

    About how exactly to access Postgres database from the PgAdmin, please contact PgAdmin-Postgres tool support to get more professional help.

  • Actually I found out that Windows program are able to see postgres running in Ubuntu like a local Windows program.  In other words I could connect from Windows to PG on Ubuntu using host 127.0.0.1 and port 5432.
    This can be marked as resolved.

    thanks.
