I am having an issue setting up a remote server . I am running ColdFusion Builder 2.0.1 on win 7 64bit. My remote server is ColdFusion Server standard 10, installed on Windows Server 2008R2.
Builder tells me that my server is stopped and when I try to start it thru CB I get this error in the console.
Admin Server for the remote server is not running.
I know I do not have something configured right, I just don't know what the settings should be and where I can find the required info.
Also do I need to open up some ports on the firewall?
Screen shots of my setup. Let me know if you need more information to help troubleshoot.
Not sure if I have the correct ports or not, how to I find out what the correct ports should be?

You need to do minor changes in the server to add your server remotely to CFBuilder those changes are as follows
1. Go to Server installation directory and navigate to ColdFusion10\cfusion\jetty\etc\jetty.xml
a. open jetty.xml , you will find the following lines
<Set name="port"><SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8985"/></Set>
In this code change the IP: 127.0.0.1 to IP where your server is installed.
Restart the server.
2. Start the jetty server "Start.jar"
After doing these changes, now add the server to your Builder.
Kona, I’m curious why you recommend the Jetty server (which is for Solr) as something that Dwight needs to configure for CFBuilder connectivity. I don’t see how they are connected at all. (But don’t hear me wrong: I appreciate that you’re just trying to help him. But if this has “worked” for you, I’d really think it was somehow coincidental.)
Instead, I’d think the challenge Dwight would be related to any of several other things, like whether he’d started the “admin” service (via the adminstart script), whether he’d configured the security.properties file (if needed), and so on. All these and more are discussed in the CFBuilder docs (which I do wish more people would reference themselves and refer to others to consider). In this case, see the section on adding remote servers, at:
The front page for the manual is here:
It’s also covered some in the manual on installing CFB:
Best of all, one of the Adobe engineers did a pair of blog entries trying to add still more info (one for standalone/server deployment of CF, and one for multiserver/j2ee deployment of CF):
