Hi Guys,

I have just setup a new reporting server and configured SSRS. I can connect to the report server from my local browser, however when I try to connect using report builder I get the following error:

Connection Failed
Unable to connect to the server that is specified int the URL , "http://serverIP/reports". Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct and you have permission to use the server.

In my options i have set up - http://serverIP:80/Reports
And I use the same user name and password that I use for RDP and connecting via my web browser. The user is a sys admin, and also has sysadmin rights in my SQL Server management studio.
What am I doing wrong?

Do you have a firewall on the serve, which is blocking the connection?

This server is newly set up. I would assume all the default settings.

Windows firewall is enabled by default. have you set it up to allow http connections?

I have opened port 80 on the firewall. Is there anything else I should open?

For http access, no. But if you're making connections from anywhere else then only you will know what ports your using. For example, you might want to open port 1433 is your SQL instance is running on the default port.

Personally, and I know I'm not the only one, I'm not a fan of Windows Firewall. All our servers have it switched off and use other software.

It could just be the URL you are referencing for the Report Server. Try using:
http://<servername>/reportserver

You need to point to the report server, not report manager.
