ColdFusion Local IP on Mac

I am using a Mac with ColdFusion installed for my development environment. Currently, I have to go to http://localhost:8500/SiteName/ to test in my local environment. The problem I'm having is when I click on a link, like in my menu, ex: /contact/, it wants to go to http://localhost:8500/contact/ instead of http://localhost:8500/SiteName/contact/.

When I use a Windows machine, which is not an option here, I can just configure IIS and a local IP. With the Mac, there is no IIS. I can assign local IPs all day long but cannot associate the local IP to the SPECIFIC website I'm developing.

Any ideas?
