I understand your question to be:
How do I change the network address that users are allowed to connect to the PostgreSQL database from?

The PostgreSQL database uses the pg_hba.conf file to authorize network (and local) connections to the database.  You have 5 types of authentication methods to select, the database, the user and the host address (or network).

After modifying the pg_hba.conf file, you can issue a "pg_ctl reload" (as documented in the pg_hba.conf file) as a database superuser.

(Offices have an internal pattern of '###.###.N.###' for their IP combos; the new branch has a different value of N from the main office.)  I've been requested to verify that the systems from the branch site will be able to log into the main office's server.  I know how to check and verify the login IP values for the mysql database, and I'm fairly confident I can figure out what I'll need to permit the postgres system to accept the new branches, but where do I need to look and reset in order to ensure that the systems can actually log into the server itself?
