    ColdFusion Setup for Flex

    RBC

      I have two questions about setting up ColdFusion to access a remote CFC from FLEX (Flash Builder 4.5).  I host several domains on my ColdFusion 8 server with IIS 6.  I would like to set things up so that I can hit a CFC that is not on the same domain as my "main" coldfusion server (ColdFusion .CFM files run fine from this domain).  I can't seem to do it though.

       

      If I adjust my service control endpoint so that it USES my main coldfusion domain, it works:

       

      _serviceControl.endpoint = "http://www.myMainColdFusionDomain.com/flex2gateway/"

       

      but if I try a different domain, it does not work:

      _serviceControl.endpoint = "http://www.
      notMyMainColdFusionDomain.com.com/flex2gateway/

       

      Also, I am having trouble with putting my CFC in a subdirectory and still getting it to work.  In other words, building from the above working URL, I can't seem to just add a subdirectory to the URL--it doesn't work:

       

      _serviceControl.endpoint = "http://www.myMainColdFusionDomain.com/subDirectory/flex2gateway/"

       

      I am sorry if what I am asking seems very basic, I am just learning.

       

      Thank you.

          Ok, I think worked this out for myself.

           

          First, I adjusted my default website in IIS so that it pointed to the directory of the domain I wanted to use, that cleared up the domain issue--not really the way I thought it would be done, but it works...

           

          Next for my directory question, I used a dot notation to indicate there is a subdirectory, and plugged it into my super class as follows: 

           

          _serviceControl.source = "subdirectory.myCFCsName";
