How do I Setup & Configure SQL Reporting Services to work with SQL Server 2008

I am getting the following error on this during the final install of CRM. It seems to be from a setting I do not understand. What exactly is it saying I need to do? Please advise.

Setup failed to validate specified Reporting Services Report Server http://OURSERVER/ReportServer. Error: The operation you are attempting requires a secure connection (HTTPS).
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The operation you are attempting requires a secure connection (HTTPS). ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.SecureConnectionRequiredException: The operation you are attempting requires a secure connection (HTTPS).

Have you tried addressing the report server as HTTPS:// ?

Where do I do that. It sound like a more secure solution.....? Sorry I am a bit overwhelmed by all this.

When the CRM installation asks for the Report Server location, try using https://OURSERVER/ReportServer
The error you are getting is implying you are trying to connect through the normal port but it is expecting connection through SSL.

The CRM installation does not seem to want to clear those Red X 's can I still go back an reconfigure or do I need to go in to the Report Services Configuration manager and go to the Web.

Where do I go to change that HTTP to HTTPS?
Is it a simple text entry change?

You may be better off pressing cancel and running the CRM installation again (if this is not what you already did).

Before you do start the installation again, go into the Report Services configuration and see what the URL is for reporting services, usualy you will have http://OURSERVER/ReportServer and http://OURSERVER/Report.  Ensure you are able to go to those URL's in your web browser, even if you are then faced with an empty FTP style folder list, you will have access.  Then ensure this is the address you use in the installation of CRM (this is one of the last screens before you get the above messages).

I heard that the HTTPS is more secure somewhere. Would it be smarter to go with the HTTPS? How

Yes when I click on the link I get the page that says Report Server no errors on that black and white page

See the image

It would appear you are using SSL and the links are connecting fine.
Try going through the CRM installation again, but copy and paste the URL of the reporting server from your browser.
It looks like it is allowing traffic on both port 80 and 443 (SSL) so try the second link first (https) - if that fails press the back button and try the first link (http).

Do I have to do the whole install again or can I just go back and see if the codes clear then move on.

You could just use the back button and try the new URLs.

I did put in a unique port number which I have for CRM and....
In the install of CRM when Specifying the Report Services Server I saw the
http://OURSERVER/ReportServer
I was wondering if the Report Server URL was where I should put the change of the HTTP to the HTTPS

Try that, change to HTTPS for your reprt server setting

I think I am on to something thanks to you totally. When I went back and changed the pecifying the Report Services Server to HTTPS I got a much shorter message which makes me think now I need to do something..........that something I do not know to validate the certificate.

A server certificate could not be validated for URL: https://OURSERVER/ReportServer.

Okay now both links are working they take me to a blank page with something like the image below.

When I try to back up say to the Specifying the Report Services Server then try to get past the " Systems Requirement" page I still get the red x with the error:
A server certificate could not be validated for URL: https://OURSERVER/ReportServer.

When I went back to do the bottom link the system asked me to accept a certificate. I did and when I went back to the link it launched me into the site I logged in and got the image below.
