Configuring CFBuilder for a remote server setup

Jul 30, 2009 5:28 AM

Yesterday, I searched high and low for several hours in an attempt to configure CFBuilder, for it will be able to work with Coldfusion 9 on a remote machine.  I came across some posts in this forum that other users seemed to have this problem and followed the steps that Bhakti Pingale had published, titled, “Remote Server Setup- Standalone”.


So my server settings are the following:


Servername*: Windows Server

Description: Coldfusion 9 on Windows Server 2003

Hostname*: windowsserver


WebServer Port*: 80

RDS User Name: admin

RDS Password: password


Naming Port: 2910

Username*: admin

Password*: admin

Document Root: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot


Bhakti recommended to start adminstart.bat file that resides on the server, which I ran and when I refresh my server settings in CFBuilder, I get that “HARMLESS” message, which is ok.  Also, in CFBuilder I have tested my RDS Configuration by navigating to the following:


Windows>Preferences>Adobe>RDS Configuration


And then I hit the 'Test Connection' button, and a popup says, “Test connection was successful.”  I am able to ping my local server (windowsserver) successfully, checked to make sure that CFIDE directory reside in my Document Root as Bhakti mentioned.  I checked my usernames and passwords.


I am stuck, help!
