Change IP Address Coldfusion 9 Developer Edition

June 16, 2010 · 42 Comments

  A License exception has occurred.
  You tried to access the Developer Edition from a disallowed IP address 
  ( The Developer Edition can only be accessed from 
  and two additional IP addresses. The additional IP addresses 

If you are, I have bad news, unfortunately there is no file or admin area to edit the allowed IP's. By default ColdFusion allocates the first two external IP addresses that hit the ColdFusion service. The only way to change the allocated IP addresses is to restart the ColdFusion service and hit the server with the correct IP addresses. Not ideal I know, but it's currently the only way.
