Note: The text of this TechNote refers to ColdFusion MX 6.1; however, these instructions also apply to ColdFusion MX.
After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, the Windows Firewall is enabled by default. This prevents ColdFusion MX 6.1 from functioning correctly. This TechNote describes the steps that need to be taken in order to overcome this.
Macromedia has identified three specific areas of ColdFusion MX 6.1 that are affected by installing the new Windows XP SP 2 when the Windows Firewall is enabled:
- Browsing ColdFusion templates from a computer other than where ColdFusion is installed
- Using the cfftp tag with the attributes Action="Close" and StopOnError="yes"
- Starting the Verity K2 service
