I have an instance of SQL Report Server running on my main sql server. I deploy reports here for my company to use. To my knowledge, no changes have been made to this server in some time, however, as of today I am unable to get to the Report Server interface. I enter the same path into my webbrowser that I always do, but I can not get there. I just get a "cannot diplay webpage" error as though it was a bad address or something.  Has anybody run into this? I have checked and the site is running, IIS has been restarted as a "just in case" measure, and all services appear to be running. I just can't get to my report server over the internet. I am currently running IE7 for a browser, and all machines are running XP Pro SP2. The only exception is the server itself which is Server 2003. I am not even able to get to the Report Server interface from the actual server it's installed on either.

I figured it out. The temp files were getting deleted when I would log off the server and then log back on to it. As a result, a temp directory that SQL Management Studio was looking for did not exist. I was able to manually recreate the folder and everything worked. We have since resolved the issue of the temp files being deleted.
