But I'm trying not to work with Integrated Windows Security.  I want the reports to be accessible from outside the network.  I have a login application and menu then from the menu I want the user to be able to access each report.

Does this still apply for what I'm trying to do?

This isn't by far the best solution, actually one of the worst but a work around that I found was to basically allow all access to the reports by editing the web.config file and adding an <authentication> tag with an <allow users="*"> tag.  THIS IS HIGHLY UNSECURE, however it met our needs.
