Coldfusion 2016 can't access ColdFusion administration utility remotely

I've installed two instances of ColdFusion on separate servers.  One using the "Development" environment install option (not to be confused with the "Developer edition"; these are licensed servers), and the other using the "Production" environment install option.

I can't access the ColdFusion admin pages of either server from my laptop, but I can access the admin pages for each server from the servers themselves, respectively.

How do I change the server configuration so I can access the CF Admin screen from my laptop?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Frank,

Could you please try entering the IP/Hostname of the server(s) in the URL while accessing.

Hi, frank000000​,

How did you install CF Server?  Did you select to use the built-in webserver?  Or did you configure it for IIS, or Apache?  Did you run the configuration tool, after the install?

If you set it for the built-in webserver, then you access the CFAdmin by opening a browser and going to (http or https)://{ip address or FQDN of server}:8500( or :8501)/CFIDE/Administrator (keep in mind that if capital-A "Administrator" doesn't work, try lower-case "administrator" instead.)  If you're not including the port number, you're not going to reach CFAdmin.

However, if you configured it for IIS or Apache, then it should be the same URL _minus the port number_.

You didn't give much detail in your question/OP, so there's not a lot to go on.  But what I described, above, is the simplest solution.

HTH,

^_^
