When selecting OSM Tools (Import into PostGIS) , attching my .osm file in the Input option, selecting my OSM Database, and then clicking run, I am prompted to enter a password for connection.

"Enter password for connection (or leave blank) "osm":"

When either leaving blank, making up a password, or using my Postgres password I get this error.

Password:
Connection to database failed: FATAL:  password authentication failed for user "osm"
Finshed!

I not sure what I am doing wrong. From what I have read it should authenticate.

Thanks for any time you have.

Do you have a user with the name osm? –  R.K. Oct 29 '12 at 11:33
    
No I don't think I do. Well I havn't created a user. And what ever password I put in it comes back with an error. For example when putting in a password of "open" it returns: Password: Connection to database failed: FATAL: password authentication failed for user "open" Finished! –  christopher Oct 30 '12 at 0:38
