Coldfusion debugger common mistake

Step-through debugging is the best method of debugging I ever know. With the introduction of ColdFusion Step-through debugger as eclipse plug-in, coldfusion development became much handy. But I have noticed most of them do a simple careless mistake while setting up the debugger for the first time (including me). Just thought of mentioning it here.

In the RDS configuration under ColdFusion preference, the value of the port number should be the http port number of the ColdFusion server. But as a continuation of server side debugger setup, people used to enter the debugger port specified in the ColdFusion administer.

It would be better if Adobe includes some description for the Port Number field as it does for the Context Root field
