Why credentials prompts when accessing to SQL Reporting Services URL?

This is a newly-setup MS SQL 2012. After that, whenever I wanted to access the URL > http://sqlserver01/ReportServer, a dialog box popped up requires me to enter the user name and password; No matter wath user account I entered, be it local user account or domain admin user account, I can't proceed to the next page. I told the settings can be set in the Reporting Services Configuration Manager console, I did made few changes but the result is still the same. Why? Please show in step-by-step.

Thanks in advance.

What OS are you using? you need to go to the IIS admin on the box running that website and change the authentication mode in there.

This is using MS Windows 2008 R2 server.

Browse to the http://sqlserv01/Reports, when prompted for credentials, type in local administrator with password. After that, grant any designated domain user accounts with content manager.

And this solve the problem.
