I have created an ssrs 2005 report and deployed it to a server.  The report does work when you access it via the web address.  I am using Visual Studio 2008 to create an application.  I have a WebBrowser control on a form that links to the reports url address.   I originally used a local path http:\\localhost\etc for testing purposes of the application on my computer.  When I change the url to the server path and publish the application it is trying to access the local path.
