Did you opt to use CF's built-in webserver or your own webserver?

If it's using IIS 6, the :8500 port won't apply, that's just for the built-in webserver that comes with CF.  

So, only the first URL is what we're interested in.  400 error, what do MS say:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/247249

naa nothing helpful from MS.

i found the 8500 mentioned on another site so thought i'd try it.

its probably somthing really simple that i need to do but i'm just not sure what else to try.

so what port does cf use?

duncancummingCommented:
well if you're using IIS it'll use whatever port you have enabled there, default of 80

SidFishesCommented:
is iis set up to use an IP?  if so localhost or loopback won't work

you might try

http://servermachinename/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

or

http://serverip.ip.ip.ip/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

also... are you able to serve any pages at all? cfm htm etc
