I think that by default ColdFusion doesn't run on a particular IP port for external access. It is an web service filter and is accessed directly by the web server sending requests to iscf.dll. I don't know exactly what the mechanism is for doing this, but I'm pretty sure that it doesn't use standard IP ports.

I could be wrong here though as I have never really researched it.

I am pretty sure that CF server service runs on a logical IP port like other NT services, and i am looking for that port number. Also, i think this number is on the higher end of available IP ports

If you want to test it out there is a nice scanner available at:

http://www.atelierweb.com/pscan/download.htm

It allows you to scan your own machine to find out which ports are listening. It also has a list of known ports for particular programs and services. I haven't found Coldfusion in that list though.

I am currently scanning with cf running and will re-scan without it running to see if it makes a difference.

Update on this.

I haven't been able to isolate any ports being used by the coldfusion service. It appears that all communication with cfserver must be done through either:
1.A web server filter such as an isapi filter in iis which passes the request to iscf.dll as a normal filesystem call

2.A cgi bin call by putting cfml.exe in a cgi directory and requesting a specific template to call.

3.A filesystem call using cfml.exe from the command line. Again specifying the template to be called and any paramaters to pass to the template.
