I have a couple of PC's networked in my office, one of which I barely use. I have been playing with coldfusion for developement, using a developers version on my local PC. This has worked fine for a while, but I find that my PC resources get low, when using a databes system like SQL as well.
With the idea of freeing much as much as possible, I would love to be able to install the  CF Developers version on my spare PC, and then use it as my testing server.
My main PC runs Vista, and my other PC runs XP Pro.
Can anyone tell me if this can be done, as well as an idea of how?

    Developers version you can allow 2 different IP addresses to access.

    setup on a spare PC and then use it as a testing server, 2 PC's can connect to it over the network no problem. this is how my testing server is setup.

    yes two 2 pc's or, to put it another way 2 IPs addresses. the first two pc's to connect get the slots, you have to restart CF to reset this.

    glad i helped
