ColdFusion MX comes with a webserver configuration tool for connecting to external web servers. There can be occasions, however, when the tool doesn't work properly. If the tool doesn't work, you can configure the connector manually. This TechNote demonstrates the steps required for manually configuring connections to Apache 2, IIS, and iPlanet websites.
The ColdFusion MX Standalone server can only connect to one webserver at a time and does so through a proxy port. The default proxy port is 51010 in ColdFusion MX 6.1 and 51011 in ColdFusion MX 7. If you are using ColdFusion MX 7, then change "default" to "coldfusion" and change 51010 to 51011.
In all the configurations below, replace cf_root with the actual ColdFusion MX installation directory, typically C:\CFusionMX for Windows and /opt/coldfusionmx on Unix.
