I'm trying to set up a Report Server on my laptop to test a couple of ideas. I'm having a problem convincing Visual Studio 2010 to use the URL I'm giving it. Reporting Services Configuration Manager gives me the URL as http://myserver:80/reportserver, however when I try to enter this as the TargetServerURL on the Report Properties it changes it automatically to http://myserver/reportserver. Obviously when I then try and deploy the report it fails. Internet Explorer does the same, when I enter the URL as given to me it changes it and then tells me that it can't find the website. Does anybody have any suggestions?


On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

My colleague came up with a workaround. He suggested changing the port to another one ie http://myserver:84/ReportServer and this worked. Does anybody know why it would do that?

80 is the default port for IIS so maybe that's why it was deleting the 80. It may have been failing because you have something else running on port 80 so changing the port number to an available port worked.
