I followed the instructions at:
and CFB will still not communicate with the remote server.
I have been able to set up a local CF9 beta server with no issues.
Here are the details:
CF9 beta (downloaded on 7/19/2009)
Running Windows 2003 64 bit
CFB Beta (downloaded on 7/19/2009)
Set up details: I followed the instructions to the letter from http://blogs.adobe.com/cfbuilder/2009/07/remote_server_setup_is_it_real.html
The status of the remote server is "unknown".
I have the Admin service running (port 2910). There are no errors or security issues reported.
Can you send us the screenshot of your server details(both the screens).
Meanwhile I will try to replicate the setup here.
Try this, delete your server settings. Then add a new server with the correct info. There seems to be a server settings cache issue in Coldfusion Builder which will not use your edits. I got this tip from Bhakti Pingale, and that was exactly the issue I had. I also gave the 'Server Name' field a different value the second time; just in case if it would use my old settings.
