Accessing Network Files and Directories

Having trouble getting ColdFusion to access files and directories on other servers on your network? It is likely a rights related problem. When ColdFusion is installed on NT (or Windows 2000) it is installed with standard system service access – this allows ColdFusion to access the server it is on, but not any other server. For the ColdFusion service to be able to access other servers you’ll need to configure the service to log on with an actual user account. You can do this from within the Services Control Panel applet (or the Services component in Windows 2000). (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
