Server doesn't connect to clients: clients connect to server.

Superserver on POSIX platforms does not have a "serverless" connection option. You need the full network path of hostname:/path/to/database_file or, better, hostname:alias. (Put /path/to/database_file in aliases.conf.)
Also make sure that your firewall is allowing traffic through port 3050 and that your database is on a partition that is physically attached to the host machine.
