Check the authentication mode enabled in the server and web service and the credentials set in SSRS.

The error is basically some login or network privileges missing to establish connection between SSRS and the Server.

A more simple approach:

start-->program files-->microsoft sql server--> configurtion tools-->

reporting server configuration.

in report server virtual directory --> uncheck the require secure socket layer (ssl) connections--> press apply

Might be your server certification has expired.
Go for renewing your Certificate [Computer Management - IIS configurations] to request a new certifficate from the CA.

Once the new certifficate was installed on both IIS and the client station, your problem might be resolved.

No we just did that last month, I have no idea what I am doing with this configuration, and I don't think I set it up correctly.

I wish I knew more about the code.
