OK... lots to answer here...

1) You can verify your gateway by simply browsing to the URL you
specified... if the page is blank, you're good to go... if you got an error,
you're not.

2) You need to place your cfc files beneath your CF webroot folder... this
is the default location for the gateway to look.

3) You need to confirm that you have a /flex folder under your
ColdFusion/wwwroot/WEB-INF/ directory... if not, then you need to look into
how to get that setup... I can't remember off the top of my head, but
there's plenty of information on setting up ColdFusion for Flex.

4) Once you get your /flex directory setup properly, there are a few files
in there you'll need to configure... a) services-config.xml, b)
remoting-config.xml.  There is also information out there on setting these
up.  Essentially, you'll need to reference an EndPoint which is defined in
these files.  There is a default one setup called ColdFusion which has a
channel setup for it already.  You really should be able to utilize the
ColdFusion endpoint automatically as soon as you have things setup, and your
CFC located within the webroot folder.

I can provide some examples for each of these areas if you still need help,
but don't have access to them on the current machine I'm writing this from.
 Let me know, and good luck!
