I have just installed Microsoft SQL Server Report Builder and am trying to connect to a remote report server. I get an error message "Connection Failed. Upable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL, 'http://srps-logging/reportserver'"

I can browse to this URL in internet explorer fine. I even installed Report Builder 2.0 on the machine where SSRS is installed and tried connecting to 'http://localhost/reportserver'. Same message.

I do not even know where to begin troublshooting.

check port open on servers?
check permissions?

Report Builder 2.0 is not yet integrated with SQL Server 2008 Reporting services. You will have to use the 2.0 verion as a stand alone application for now, untill SQL Server 2008 SP1 is release.

Hope this helps.

Just a note.. The link provided above in the accepted solution only sorted out a different issue for me  -
I had installed SP1 but was still getting Report Builder 1.0 from the ReporServer URL link. - the posting to add the Custom URL in Site settings solved that.
However the original problem I had (same as the author) was not solved. What did solve it was the fact that there is is NEW version of Report Builder 2.0 (released after I had installed Report Builder 2.0 ) - note that files in the directory where it intalls - if they date back to October last year, then this is an old version. In the new version (files are from 30 March 2009 ) the above mentioned problem doesnt exist anymore.
