DeliveryInDoubt - connecting ColdFusion and Flex by Remote object

Hello experts,
I am trying to get my flex app to talk to coldFusion which will in turn talk to my SQL server database.  I am experienced in CF and SQL, but new to Flex .  

I've confirmed that my flex app can connect to coldfusion because when I put in a bogus source name in the flex remoteobject it says that the component isn’t found. (also.. remoteobjects are in play on other Flash based applications on this server as well)
But when I reference the right name, I get a message that the Channel Disconnected.

I've also confirmed that the cf component works beccause I can invoke it from a cfm page just fine.
I have put the services-config.xml in the appropriate CFroot folder as well.

So why can't I get and keep a data connection? Is there some permission problem where CF is denying flex access?
