One of my developers is trying to run multiple threads against one of our SQL server reporting services instances and it generates a Error 112 possible denial of service attack and blocks IP. I assume this is something you can configure in the web.config file can someone please help me get this setup? I am familar with IIS but this is the first time i have worked with the Reporting Services Web Server.

I read through the article but i don't see how that applies to my situation. Maybe i need to clarify more. I believe the problem is the number of connections to the box in a short about of time is tripping the DOS threshold. In IIS this would be setup via DIPR but i don't know where to look for the setting is Reporting Services web Server. If the job only failes if it is run on the local lan if it runs across even a 5-10 ms link it will run successfully but the whole point of the multiple threads is to get the job done faster.

In web.config:

connection string for SQL Server:
"Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=;Max Pool Size=100;Min Pool Size=5;"
