Tutorial :Connection to report server could not be made from BI VS 2005 but the report server is browseable


I have IIS6 configured such that browsing to http://localhost:8082/Reports gets me the reporting services default home page, which is all as expected. However, when I try to publish a report via Microsoft Business Intelligence Visual Studio 2005 I get the following error: A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost:8082/Reports The attempt to connect to the report server failed. Check your connection information and that the report server is a compatible version.

I have windows authentication turned on for report server. Does that have anything to do with not being able to publish projects?


I cannot upvote, but guy is correct. Go into Project->Properties and change TargetServerURL to "http://localhost:8082/ReportsServer". This should alleviate your problems.

If you need to deploy to a named instance remember that your URL will be "http://servername/ReportServer$instancename".


Have you tried to publish you report to:


"/ReportsServer" is the webservice for Reporting Services. "/Reports" is the front end.


Step 1 : Just log in to the corresponding server

step 2 : Do the settings in internet explorer[IE] browser, Tools => Internet Options => Select connections tab => Click on LAN settings => Just check the check box use a proxy server

Step 3 : Issue will get fixed
