How do I change the port for Reporting Services 2005 and SharePoint 2.0 on a working Team Foundation Server?

Posted on 2006-05-26

Hello.  I have a working single server installation of Team Foundation Server on my network.  I already have a company web site on port 80, and would like the Team Foundation Server system to be available to developers outside my network.  How do I change the ports from 80 to something else?  The only thing I know to do is change the port in the "Default Web Site" properties in IIS.  That seems to work for SharePoint, but not for Reporting Services.  No one can create a project without Reporting Services coming through.  Any suggestions?

    Open up file explorer, and browse to c:\program files\microsoft sql server\mssql\reporting services\reportmanager and notice that there are 3 config files. Open up RSWebApplication.config there is a XML element with a URL to the report server http://<ServerName>/ReportServer. Change that to http://<URL>:8181/ReportServer, save the config file and open up IE again.

    8181 is merely a suggestion for security purposes...also check that in you default web site there are not Virtual Directories for Reporting Services included in your company web server...this could cause the port bind to 80...

    Hope this helps,

    If Reporting services is a virtual directory of your default web site, open the file "RSWebApplication.config" mentionned by 1_UP in the previous post and replace the ReportServerUrl tags looking like :


    by something like this:


    ...where "ReportServer" is the name of your virtual directory in your default website (usually "ReportServer").

    Report Manager and report server must be configured to use the same Web site in order to use "ReportServerVirtualDirectory".
