I have installed SQL Server Standard Edition (x64) on a Windows 7 x64 OS

I ensured that all the IIS 6 Compatibility software was added from Windows Features.

SSRS 2005 is up and running and I can see it in IIS
The SSRS service is logged in using 'NT Authority\NetworkService'

Using the browser I'm unable to connect to Report Manager.
I get the message "Unable to connect to the remote server" and nothing else.

The URL I've tried is http://tts-07/Reports$TTS2005 as that is the name in the SSRS Config tool against Report Manager Virtual Directory Settings.
The account I am logged in with has full admin rights.

I've been looking on the web all day for a solution but cannot seem to get anywhere.

Any assistance in pointing me at a resolution will be gratefully received.

I've found a solution, typical that I find it minutes after posting the question on here.

The following url gave me the solution which was all to do with ISAPI.dll not being enabled
