Key piece of additional info on this:
Under the Servers tab I see my cfmx server's status is "Unknown" (see attached screenshot). As I understand it, this should say "Running". Can anyone confirm and perhaps offer suggestions?

As I understand from your setup, you are able to successfully start the admin on your remote server. Have you changed the security.properties?
But its important to check what port are you specifying for this server in CF Builder.
The webserver port(Add Server Wizard, Panel 1) will not be 8000. It should be the port on which ColdFusion is running. So if your CF Administrator/CFIDE is rendered using port 8500, then your webserver port becomes 8500.
Your JNDI port(Add Server Wizard - Panel 2) is the port in which admin is running, so when you started admin using adminstart.bat you must have seen the port 2910 or 2911, check that. That should be your JNDI port.
After you specify all the server details appropriately you should see the status as 'Running' only then can you work with this server.
For the Public Beta build that you are using, there is support only for JRun based servers. Hence if your server instance is anything other than that say, JBOSS, WAS , you will not be able to add it in CF Builder.
We are supporting it in the next drop of CFBuilder.
In case you are still facing a problem with adding a Remote- JRun based ColdFusion server, can you please provide us with the screen shot of your Server details(both Panels)? And the URL of your CFIDE Administrator?
