Asking for User Name and Password when connecting to Report Manager


When I openned http://localhost/reports, I got the username/pw dialog. This post basically says that if you can connect to SSRS via SSMS but cannot connect to report manager, you could try to remove RSWindowsNegotiate and ensure RSWindowsNTLM is specified in the file rsreportserver.config. But it did not help.


Run the IE as an admin.

Step 1. Install IIS - OK
Step 2. Install SSRS - OK
Step 3. Configure Reporting Services
Problem on Database Setup

Step 4. Connecting to SSRS
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
  1. Checked: remote connection enabled, TCP/IP enabled, SQL Browsing running, restarted SQL Server service, but still the same
  2. Back to IIS Installation (from Add/Remove Windows Components in XP), Under World Wide Web, selected Remote Desktop Web Connections. Now the error message is:

Run the following DOS command: 
"C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe" -i
