comment For maximum security should I use distributed mode or a reverse proxy setup?
Your answer is definitely helpful and I have up voted it for that reason. I have not accepted it yet in case someone else answers. If not, I will. Can you answer one more question. When you use a reverse proxy do you still have a web server installed on your ColdFusion server? Or do you setup the proxy to communicate directly to ColdFusion/Tomcat? Thanks for your help on this!

Sorry I'm not trying to deviate from the original intent of my question. And I realize that there may not be a specific answer to it which may bend the rules of this site. I'm beginning to think that my understanding of the architecture in a reverse proxy setup is wrong. I don't have a specific link to point you to either but my perception is that hardly anyone runs ColdFusion in "distributed mode". I see more references to reverse proxy instead. If a reverse proxy is nothing more than a different web connector than I definitely misunderstood.

@BradWood - Your last comment nails it for me and is why I still believe distributed mode is more secure than a reverse proxy. If my web server is compromised they still don't have my application server assets. How would a reverse proxy alleviate this?

Thanks Brad. Let me clarify a bit, I don't think I am confused with distributed mode versus reverse proxy in and of itself. What confuses me is that I hear (read) people say that a reverse proxy is just as secure as running distributed mode. I'm not sure it is. I would also say they are more attack vectors for an IIS web server than for a CF application server. Just guessing. How do you normally setup your environment(s)?

@MichaelHampton - I have sent him an email via his website, yes. No response yet. I am hoping that others will chime in here at least to share what they do.

You should post that as an answer to your question and accept it. It is okay to do that here and makes it easier for future visitors to find. Glad you got it working.

Can't you just run the standalone installer again but choose the other instance's directory?
